Catherine Zeta-Jones and Douglas had been separated for quite some time but they recently reunited and have made a public appearance together after a very long time. While he had his wife at his side, Douglas felt comfortable in opening up about his journey of battling the deadly disease of cancer and shared his story of being misdiagnosed with tongue cancer only to later find out that it was his throat that the cancer had attacked.

While speaking in front of this large group of doctors, the academy award winner actor said that "Generally when I'm on a stage at a prestige event like this I'm accepting some kind of an award” and he was "grateful not to walk out of here with another prognosis." And as the crowd broke into an easy laugh, he added "As long as nobody tells me to bend over and touch my toes and cough we're all going to be just fine.” But apart from the jokes, Douglas continued, "In all seriousness and in every sense of the word. I'm very fortunate to be here today."

And it wasn’t just Douglas at the event who spoke but Catherine Zeta-Jones also shared her experience and said "I'm very happy to be here this morning with my husband.” She continued "I mean that literally, I'm very happy to be here with my husband. I'd like to be treated in New York where I live, so I could go back to my home”
