Patrick Swayze Has Terminal Cancer

Patrick Swayze Has Terminal Cancer

Patrick Swayze has terminal cancer and only has five weeks to live, reports The National Enquirer.

The 55-year-old Dirty Dancing actor was diagnosed in late January with pancreatic cancer that has spread to other organs. Swayze has been receiving treatment at Stanford University’s cancer center in Palo Alto for radical chemotherapy.

“He was told he could have two more treatments, but his cancer was not responding. In short – they held out little hope for a cure,” said an insider.

The NY Post has confirmed the news with his publicist, saying, “He’s suffering from pancreatic cancer, which could tragically bring down the curtain on his remarkably diverse career… The average life expectancy is six to nine months, with only 4 percent of patients living more than five years.”

Pray for a miracle!!

UPDATE: Swayze‘s doctor, Dr. Patrick George, tells People: “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 time frame of his prognosis and his physical side effects are absolutely untrue. We are considerably more optimistic.”

Swayze‘s rep adds: “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.”

    He should really try vitamin B 17, amgdalyn, laetrile, in high doses. I know this therapy is not allowed in the US, but there is a hospital in Mexico, the

    Contreras Hospital in Tijuana.

    Good luck!

    Yes, that is sad.

    Sorry for the spelling mistake: It is called amygdalin.

    Give it a try!

    Ledger brought it to himself. Patrick is among the many good guys that unfairness of life happens to them while evil people get away with it until at some point they have its scary payback too.

    God bless Patrick and his family while shame on heartless ninnies like Marion Cotillard.

    I’m shocked if it’s true, but it’s from the National Enquirer. C’mon, J.J. These are the people who still believe in alien sightings.
