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.”

My uncle died of pancreatic cancer last year just six months after he was dieagnosed. Unfortunately no survival rate for this type of cancer.

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.

Dayum Patrick =( Bless you & this Fight ……….

YOU will always be remembered as inspiration *tears*

These pictures should be OFF LIMITS…are there no boundaries the media wont cross?? I lost my mom, my dad, a close friend’s mom to cancer and my spouse lost his uncle and his mom is now fighting it. God bless to all the courageous fighters like Patrick. And please if nothing else get this…DONT SMOKE it’s not attractive when it turns to cancer.

horrible disease. he’s far too young

The uncle of my sister died of pancreatic cancer last January, only 50 days after he was diagnosed. It was too fast, he died at 51.

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.

please,don’t post these photos anymore…

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.

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.

Patrick, You will always be loved and admired. I’m thankful for your movies and the good you did for everyone. You’re always in my prayers.

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.

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.

Patrick Swayze, you are a lovely man and so strong. We love you

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.

@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

This makes me absoluletly sad :( This should be a wakeup call that nobody should be whining, stressing over life as long as you have your HEALTH. May god help him and his loved ones at this difficult time. Patrick..your are the MAN!!

we are borned on the same day,I hope he is strong because he needs to be,such a great person,actor
I wish him the best

Great actor!!! God bless him and his family!!! Stay strong!!!

JARED IS A DISGRACE FOR POSTING THESE IMAGES.

Omg. Seriously, when I saw these pictures I thought they had the wrong man, but realized it is Patrick Swayze! Cancer is a horrible disease. I really do wish him well.

I agree with others, please take thse photos down, it is heartbreaking and cruel to not do so.
