Douglas recovering while holidaying in Disney Land

Film star Michael Douglas has been photographed with his family at Disney World, Florida, looking healthy and happy since being diagnosed with stage four throat cancer.

The 66-year old posed alongside Mickey and Minnie Mouse with wife Catherine Zeta Jones and their children Dylan, 10 and Carys, 7.

The Wall Street Never Sleeps star and Welsh-born Catherine, who now live in New York, also recently celebrated their 10th wedding anniversary on November 18.

Douglas has been candid about his battle, saying 'It really knocks you out…you just never think it is going to be you. But I'll beat this. The tumour is shrinking”

”The odds are good. I'm not dealing with mortality issues until I hear otherwise,” he said. “The doctors' prognosis is for a full recovery, and with this type of cancer there is a 70 to 80 per cent chance that it will happen.

'It doesn't seem to have spread to anywhere else in my body so however difficult the next few months of treatment will be, I'm ready for it and will take things day by day.”

While recovering, Douglas launched a fund raising campaign to help aid cancer research and urged people to have regular checks.
