Patrick Swayze is a Fighter

Patrick Swayze is a Fighter

UPDATE: Images removed.

Thank you to everyone that showed their support for Patrick — we wish him the best. Cancer is a tragic disease and we all need to raise awareness of how devastating it really is.

Patrick Swayze makes a stop at a Los Angeles gas station with his wife, Lisa Niemi, on Tuesday (April 7).

The 56-year-old Dirty Dancing star reportedly weighs only 105 lbs and has been undergoiing chemotherapy. Swayze was diagnosed with late-stage pancreatic cancer last year and recently said that he may have only two years to live.

Reports say that the beloved star has decided to go forward with a “Do Not Resuscitate” order, requiring doctors to let him die in the event that he stops breathing or his heart stops beating. Whoopi Goldberg recently said, “You know what, he’s doing what everybody else is doing, he’s taking it one day at a time. He does not have an expiration date on his backside – none of us do we just know at some point it’s going to happen and that’s how he’s looking at it.”

    Leave this sweet man and his lovely wife alone. Normally I think a public figure out in public is fair game, but come on. This is over the line.

    Words can’t describe what i’m feeling right now. I didn’t recognize him at all. I really feel for him & his family. I agree with # 5. Take these down, You have to respect the fact that he’s fighting for his life right now. He needs his privacy during this terrible time.

    It’s all in gods hands at this point. I will pray for him and his family. Be strong, Patrick.

    Wow, he does not look good. He looks 25 years older than his age. This pictures are heartbreaking. Good for him for the healthy attitude toward his condition.

    I agree, taking these photos is horrible. So is posting them. Take them down. You are better than this jared.

  • Daisy

    Jared, Please take these photos off this site! Leave this poor man in peace. Who was the scumbag/douche who tracked Mr. Swayze down, violated his privacy and made a buck off selling these pictures? All of us have lost someone we love to cancer and realize the devestation and terrible loss this horrific disease inflicts. Show some CLASS!

  • plez

    Leave him alone.

  • p-aki

    Jared, posting pictures of a dying man isn’t respectful or humane and certainly shouldn’t be the grounds of gossip

    use your common sense fool

  • Jane

    Fire the pap that took these pictures. How insensitive can one possibly be? Just disgusting. Leave him alone, please.

    Not everyone wants to be photographed when they’re dying like Jade Goody did.
    Have some respect for the guy.

  • Stephanie

    i think paps should leave patrick alone.

  • tippy

    Jared….you should be ashamed. Everything is not about money.

    It’s very disturbing to know that someone took these photos to make money. They better chew that “big fat steak” carefully. Karma might come back to bite the evil doer.

  • ana

    Yes! these pictures should be taken off out of respect for his dignity and respect for the people he loves and who love him. We all can imagine what he looks like, we don’t need the pictures to confirm it.

  • te sails

    Your a brave fighter Patrick!!!!!! Hearts be with you.

    aska @ 04/16/2009 at 12:01 pm this is heartbreaking. why even post all those photos? why not just one and show a little respect, this man is going through the fight of his life.

    I never like to make comments but this is completely unethical, shocking and shameful!!
    Shame to those responsible!!
    Show some respect to him and his family!! He is now a terminally-ill person, not one of your prices walking around.

  • gerard Vandenberg

    The first “SET” is his.
    Just two more of them……………………..WHY NOT?
    ………..just do it!!

  • Nicole Renee

    Patrick Swayze, We love you There will alway be people praying .Dig deep and hold on God is in control.

  • stella

    I feel so sorry for him but I’m very proud of him because he’s walking outside and living his own life. I wish him all the best and please don’t give up!!! It’s the most important!!! You can always be a winner just be really really strong!
    I agree with #12 there’s no shame seeing him….we don’t have to hide him! He’s just as the same people as we’re….

  • Faith

    that is so sad. i think im going to cry.

  • serafina

    Jared, please take these photos down. It’s intrusive and improper. Some events in life such as this are meant to be kept private, celebrity or not.

  • Mousse

    @Jared: remove those pics asap, please.
    Patrick Swayze and his wife should be left alone. Especially now.

  • Toya

    Please leave this man alone!
