Michael Douglas does not forget those who came out of cancer!

This is the place where the famous actor Michael Douglas learned he was suffering from throat cancer last summer, and is also the place that allowed him to treat and cure this terrible disease, as such wishes to reward the star Canadian hospital for treatment he was given. The actor of "Wall Street wants to raise money for the hospital Montreal's Jewish General Hospital and Research Centre, McGill University, a way for him to show how much he is grateful to the medical staff that the cared for while he was crossing the worst race of his life.

Among the events planned to raise money, Michael Douglas and his wife, the lovely Catherine Zeta Jones have planned as an auction, a golf charitable in the Mont-Tremblant. The pair of actors has a villa in this region north of Montreal, Canada. Participants attending the gala McGill, May 3, will spend $ 375 at that price, diners can enjoy a dinner, and for the wealthy or the most generous of them, they will pay ... to $ 750! For that tidy sum, the contributors will be invited prior to a cocktail with the actor. "It's very generous of him agreeing to help us, given its own battle against cancer of the throat," said campaign co-chair, Dr. Saul Frenkiel. The funds raised are used for medical research to find new treatments and new surgical procedures are more effective for patients suffering from cancer.

The actor has always expressed his profound gratitude to the medical profession, he had spoken about it during a TV show hosted by David Letterman last year. Last year the initiative has helped raise $ 1.5 million for medical research against cancer conducted jointly by the University of Montreal and the Montreal's Jewish General Hospital.

The actor of 65 years is now in complete remission, it is unclear whether his wife, actress Catherine Zeta Jones will also attend the gala. The actress recently had health problems that led it to incorporate a clinic for a few days. The beautiful Welsh suffered from bipolar disorder linked to depression.
