Carys Douglas is only 7 years old but she’s stepping up to the plate and taking care of her daddy, Michael, as he battles cancer.

Michael Douglas is in the fight of his life as he battles aggressive throat cancer. His wife, Catherine Zeta-Jones is currently in China doing charity work, but don’t worry, the gaunt-looking 66-year-old is in great hands — his daughter, Carys, is taking good care of him!

Of course, the sweet 7-year-old and her older brother Dylan, 10, are worried about their dad, especially since he’s lost so much weight since he began grueling radiation and chemotherapy treatments eight weeks ago. “He was determined not to have a feeding tube,” says his publicist and friend Allen Burry. Because the treatments make swallowing so difficult, Michael’s daughter has become his personal chef!

“Carys makes Michael smoothies and shakes to get his weight up,” a source close to the  Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps actor tells Star. That’s so sweet! We give that little lady a lot of credit for taking such good care of her dad. Don’t you think Catherine and Michael are raising some awesome kids?

Amazingly, the sick star has been trying to stay positive about his health crisis and is using this time to bond with his children. “Michael’s been trying to spend lots of time with the kids and help them process what’s happening,” explains the insider. “He doesn’t want to scare them but he does want to prepare them.”

Everyone here at HollyBaby.com is hoping that Michael kicks the cancer and makes a speedy recovery. We’re sure having such loving children by his side is the best medicine.

Was on the CNN site and clicked link to read about Michael Douglas’ bout with cancer. Not sure why it’s restricted but evidently it is.
