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.”

    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.

    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.

    Patrick, if you read these blogs, I just want to say you have been very inspirational to my family. My dad was diagnosed with stage 4 stomach cancer. So we are fighting the same battle you are.

    Thank you for your powerful interview earlier this year. Your bravery and gutsy attitude has really helped us cope with this disease.
