Default Patrick Swayze battling pancreatic cancer

Just heard this on FOX news. Hope he pulls through, I always enjoyed his films. Amazing to see a guy in such good shape come down with something so serious. Hopefully the fact that he is so physically fit can help him beat this.

Man, that sucks. My heart goes out to him, I cant imagine what he's going through. My thoughts and prayers go out to him and his family/friends. What a bummer.

This is so sad. Pancreatic cancer is bad and suppose to be one of these most painful to deal with. How awful.

The 5 weeks bit might not be true - we hope...

Patrick Swayze is undergoing treatment for pancreatic cancer but does not have just weeks to live, the actor's reps and doctor said Wednesday.

"Patrick has a very limited amount of disease and he appears to be responding well to treatment so far," Dr. George Fisher, Swayze's personal physician, said in a statement. "All of the reports stating the timeframe of his prognosis and his physical side effects are absolutely untrue."

Fisher's remarks were in rebuttal to the National Enquirer, which broke the news of Swayze's illness on its website and said the Dirty Dancing star had recently dropped 20 pounds and been given only five weeks to live.
