Michael Douglas will appear at a charity fundraiser for the Canadian hospital that diagnosed him with throat cancer.
The actor – who was misdiagnosed a number of times before physicians at the Jewish General Hospital in Montreal finally discovered the cancer – will attend the event on May 3, and has also contributed to an auction.
“It was his very gracious offer to help us in view of his own battle with throat cancer,” said Dr. Saul Frenkiel, a co-chair of the fundraiser. “Certainly, Michael Douglas… helps to bring to the attention of the public the need to do important research in the head and neck cancer field. We were very appreciative of his kind support – it was a gracious personal offer and certainly reflected his own inner personality and willingness to help battle head and neck cancer.”
