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.”

    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.

    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!

    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.

    Shame to those responsible!!

    There really is no reason to post these pictures. Because he is a public figure does not mean that Swayze is devoid of a right to be threated respectfully. I will not click on any more links to pictures of Patrick Swayze … let him die with some dignity.

    Ms Beth Says:

    Jared just posted a few pictures and you had to hit “MORE HERE” to see that many pictures. Why the hyprocrisy? If you don’t want to see more, don’t look. I am happy he is not dying in bed and he is on his feet and being the strong Texas man that he is. And he is keeping his vow to be with wife until death parts them. You go Patrick! Go where you want to go and walk as long as you can. And if they want a picture of you showing them how to live and die then so be it. I love the one where he looks right into the camera over his glasses. Bless his heart. Now that is a marriage.

    I have been reading just jared for several years now…

    for the first time, I found a post that totally offended me.
    I am asking you to pls take down these pictures.
    they may be pictures of a brave man, but for some reason, they are not appropriate.
    I do not think that it is appropriate for anyone to put pictures of a man being eaten alive by cancer in a gossip site.

    Caitlyn Says:

    I look in the mirror and all I see
    Is a young old man with only a dream
    Am I just fooling myself
    That she’ll stop the pain
    Living without her
    I’d go insane

    Feel her breath on my face
    Her body close to me
    Can’t look in her eyes
    She’s out of my league
    Just a fool to believe
    I have anything she needs
    She’s like the wind

    …my favorite movie, my enitre life, I’ll be devastated if he doesn’t make it.

    Way to go, paps. Stalk a guy at a gas station who is A) not currently working and B) DYING. Jared, I hope you didn’t pay the paps for these pictures. It’s only encouraging them.

    Lisa too Says:

    Just breaks my heart seeing him this way. I’m glad that he still wants to go out and get some fresh air at least. He doesn’t look at all like the man that he once was. I only hope he isn’t in any pain is all. I don’t know what to say to you tall hat posted that photos shouldn’t be taken of him? I know I feel the same as most of you that there is a time when he just needs to be left alone. I think this is the time.

    Debra77 Says:

    Jared why was it necessary to show these pics. I think an article would have been better with one picture. It is sad how quickly he has declined. I still could not believe that he was still smoking. So sad. He is lucky that he has such a loving family.

    all grown up Says:

    @snowy:

    Grow up! This man is not going to get well, he is going to die. Yes, this is what it looks like when people have cancer and die. It is a very sad situation. Say to yourself, “There but for the grace of God go I.”

    I think the paps are terrible for taking his picture, but since they did we should use it to educate. Stop smoking and drinking. Have annual screenings for cancer. Don’t be afraid of cancer, be proactive. Pray for those who suffer. Hug someone who is sick or just hold their hand. Don’t forget the caregivers.

    Be strong in your separate journeys, Patrick and Lisa

    Elizabeth Says:

    Seeing these pictures of Patrick makes my heart break. I just lost my mother to cancer. She struggled with it for four years. I myself didn’t experience the pain they are, but I do know how it feels. As for his decision not to be recesitated that is a very good choice! Who would want to suffer like that anymore. My mother was the same, she was hospitalized the last 3 weeks of her life and signed that consent form. We were shocked, but soon came to the realization that if we brought her back, she would only suffer more. I wish the Swayze family all the best in what’s to come. May Patrick and family find peace to help him through this struggle. You all one day look back and think, he was a great man, and a stronger man for battling this horrible disease. Patrick may god be with you and help you through this journey, cause the love of family can only bring you so far. May you suffer with little pain, and little sickness.

    And no matter what anyone says, you are still an amazing son, husband, father, and actor.

    G Says:

    Patrick, may the force be with you.

    We need to find a cure to cancer right now. It’s taking talented and valuable people away from the world every single day. The US has extremely high cancer rates and it’s inexplicable. Just like Climate Change and the World Financial Crisis, Cancer deserves big capital letters and needs to be in the news.

    You people who post comments about how “bad” Patrick looks, how sad you are, how you want to cry, your dear uncle who just croaked from cancer, blah blah, blah, you are just as bad as the paps taking and posting these pics. Have you thought about how your comments might affect this man or his family?! Geez, why not just wish him well and leave it at that.

    Seriously, you try to paint yourself as Mr Nice Guy Friend to the Stars, but the truth is you would w-hore your mother out for money. JJ.com is not about standards or decency….just money at any price. F U!!

    I had no idea he married his “Dirty Dancing” co-star. They were so fantastic together. What chemistry! A beautiful talented couple on film and in life. They are blessed.

    He was the symbol of fitness. A fine specimen of a human being.

    He’ll always be that symbol on film for me.

    @Media Matrix Madness:

    That is not his co star in Dirty Dancing. That was Cynthia Rhodes who is now married to Richard Marx.

    Like many other’s I feel for his family as my dad died of cancer and it is a terrible thing to see someone you love so much change so much and in pain. It is only right that the images are removed this is a personal time for him and his family but I would just like to say my thoughts are with him and he has dealt with it with much dignity and strenght.

    To be honest the images should never have been put up in the first place.

    One in 3 of us die of some form of cancer.It is such an incredibly devastating disease for the person and all of their loved ones.I have enjoyed seeing Patrick Swayze over the years and it is sad to see the physical signs of how far his cancer and the treatment has ravaged his once healthy body.I would like to extend my feelings of awe at the courageous fight he has been battling not because he is a celebrity but because he is a human being and a person.I would also like to extend the same awe at each and every person in the world that is dealing with cancer in their everyday lives.I wish you all healing,peace and love.

    BabsAnne Says:

    Just reading a few of peoples comments.I agree with those who have said that why should he shouldnt have to be hidden.Why shouldnt he (or anyone)be able to go to the shop for goodness sake in case someones sees him?This is the face of cancer,this how people look when they have been fighting it.
    I agree with people who say that the pictures were taken for monetary profit..But overall we havent been inundated with pictures of him through his illness.The photographer and the immediate people made money but for the rest of us that now see how he is and are sending our love to him and his family thats a positive thing.We arent thinking bad things about him,we are all thinking good things about him.All those vibes will be working.

    Laurie Says:

    Whoever took those pics of Patrick Swayze should be fired !!!!….hos disgusting is that ??????…..have some human compasion and let the poor man be….don’t you think him and his family are going through enough right now…how totally insensitive, disgusting, thoughtless and all for the sake of a few bucks…come on…find another way to make some money….you disgusting pig !!!!!

    Patrick is such an awesome man, talented, kind, and extraordinary. He has such charisma! My tears shall always be with this terrific man who has so bravely stood against this disease.

    Thank you very much for removing his photos portraying him ill and frail. He deserves much more respect than us oggling his illness.

    My heart goes out to Patrick and his family. I lost my mum to cancer 4 weeks ago, I will never get over it, My mum was and is my soul mate and I will miss her terribly every day. I cannot believe they have a cure for almost everything yet so many people die from this aweful disease. It truely is tragic in this day and age considering we can fly to the moon. I pray for the day they say “WE have found a cure”. God Bless all affected.

    dadlosttopancreaticcancer Says:

    All grown up – Are you really? My father had been to the doctor for a FULL check up in August of ’97. He was given a clean bill of health. He ate right, exercised and would only have an occasional drink. He was hardly sick a day in his life. The diagnosis of pancreatic cancer three months later and a prognosis of only 3 to 6 months sent us reeling. He DID everything right, yet he still died 6 months to the day of his diagnosis at the age of 59. Now, I have lost an aunt to the disease, my dad’s cousin and one of his uncles. It is in my family. There is no early detection, and it is a disease that usually takes most of those diagnosed with it. It is by far one of the deadliest cancers. I’ve loved Patrick’s determination. Randy Pausch had that same fighting spirit, but ultimately like Randy, my father and most of the others diagnosed with this dreaded disease, Patrick will lose this battle. It’s heartbreaking for him and his family. I wish them many prayers and hope they can find peace as his journey is nearing the end. God bless him and all others stricken with any form of cancer.

    tAMMIE Says:

    My Mom died of Pancreatic Cancer a year and a half ago. It is an absolutely horrible thing to watch. I wish they would find a cure and make this type of cancer more of a public awareness than it is. It is in most cases a terminal cancer. In this day and age I believe there is so much more out there that can be done than what we are aware of. Let’s all pray that a “cure” is shared with us all….

    Sandie Says:

    I love Patrick, he will always be beautiful in my mind’s eye. I don’t look at photos that tasteless greedy people publish. Patrick is the most talented dancer, actor, and music writer I know. Please, whatever you hear or see, just remember how wonderful he is. What a fantastic husband to have! He and Lisa have had in 34 years what most of us never have. God has seriously blessed him, and us. We never know what our future holds….or when we are taken to the next level. I feel so grateful to “know” him through his movies, he has personified what love can be. When I think of sexy and good, I think of Patrick Swayze. If the times comes for him to be called home, it will be God’s choice as most likely he will be in need of a fantastic warrior to fight evil. He surely has shown his inner strenght here on earth. Thank you Patrick. You are so beautiful, that is inside and out. God Bless you and Lisa.
