Michael Douglas visits jailed son amidst cancer battle
HollywoodNews.com: As he battles throat cancer, Michael Douglas remains an upstanding father, visiting his son Cameron in prison.
Douglas rep Allen Burry told E! that the three-hour commute from Manhattan to the jail in Lewisburg, PA, where Cameron resides is draining Douglas as he is “recuperating from the [chemotherapy] process”.
“He’s not going every day and not as often as he would like, but he is still visiting with him,” said Burry.
Douglas recently completed chemotherapy after being diagnosed with stage four throat cancer. His son Cameron, 31, is currently serving a five-year sentence for drug possession and dealing.
Overall, it sounds like Douglas is rebounding per Burry: “Obviously he has to recuperate and is not going to be out dancing soon, but he is recovering nicely and no more [treatments] are scheduled.”
