Michael Douglas and his wife Catherine Zeta-Jones attended a conference for doctors on Sunday (27Jul14) to thank them for saving the Traffic star's life during his cancer battle.

The actor was diagnosed with tongue cancer in 2010 and he had six months of treatment before discovering he was in remission in 2011.

The couple attended The International Federation of Head and Neck Oncologic Societies conference in New York City to pay tribute to 3,000 doctors who battle the disease on a daily basis.

Zeta-Jones, who reconciled with Douglas last year (13) after a short separation, made a heartfelt speech onstage, saying, "I'm very happy to be here this morning with my husband... I mean that literally...

"I was a mess (during his illness). I'll be quite frank, I was a mess... When I'm married to a man who has such a conviction for life... he fights to make the wrongs right... for the first time he was fighting for his life."

Douglas credited experts at the city's Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center for their research and treatment, adding, "We can only imagine what the next century will bring. Thank you for saving my life."
