Michael Douglas and wife Catherine Zeta-Jones were seen walking around Manhattan recently, despite Douglas’ struggle with throat cancer.  The 66-year-old actor is recovering from eight weeks of chemotherapy treatment for the tumor found at the back of his throat.  Michael Douglas, though thin, seemed to be perfectly happy.  The actor even managed a recent trip to Pennsylvania to visit his son Cameron in prison.  Douglas’ publicist told RadarOnline, “He’s not going everyday and not as often as he would like, but he is still visiting with him.”

What are some ways to cheer up your beau during an illness?

Cupid’s Advice:

1. Bring him a book/movie: While your beau may own countless movies and an alarming amount of literature, bring him something new.  He has a lot of time to kill, and a book or movie is relaxing and entertaining.

2. Make breakfast in bed: Breakfast in bed never fails.  If he has medicine, serve the pills as a side dish.  If he’s not coughing too much, you may even get a laugh out of him.

3. Visit him: While movies, books, and his cell phone may keep him connected to the outside world, they are no substitute for a face-to-face visit.  Visit him  It’s an easy way to show him that you care.
