Patrick Swayze has pancreatic cancer


Recommended Posts

TMZ has confirmed reports that actor Patrick Swayze is suffering from cancer.


Swayze's publicist issued the following statement to TMZ: "Actor Patrick Swayze has been diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer and is currently undergoing treatment."


The statement continues, "Patrick's physician Dr. George Fisher states, 'Patrick has a very limited amount of disease and he appears to be responding well to treatment thus far. All of the reports stating the timeframe of his prognosis and his physical side effects are absolutely untrue. We are considerably more optimistic.' Patrick is continuing his normal schedule during this time, which includes working on upcoming projects. The outpouring of support and concern he has already received from the public is deeply appreciated by Patrick and his family."




This is so sad, the survival rate of pancreatic cancer is so low too My heart goes out to his family.

Yeah, it's been out for a while, but it's still sad. I saw a recent picture of him and his wife and he's almost unrecognizable. It's horrible. They mistakenly said he had died, which is not true, on some radio station last week I think and that's why they released a picture. If anyone hasn't seen it, here's the pic:
