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.”

Very sad….My dad died of liver cancer not too long ago and these photos reminded me of him…Everything will be okay. Be strong, Patrick and family.

stay strong, we love you patrick! god bless<3

The pictures make me want to cry too! :(
He is so brave and so strong!
Cyber hug’s to Patrick!

Hang in there, Patrick, and don’t let the paps and pics get to you. Your fands love you. You are brave and an inspiration, going out, being yourself, and living your life.

these pictures should come off out of respect, im happy he is out and getting fresh air but cant someone just make a statement saying they saw him, there is no need to post these pictures…really

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.
Get well soon, Patrick, you are still hot in my eyes and always will be.


Is BLOVE short for bloviate? Look it up.

To the one who decided to display these photos:

Take a couple of minutes and imagine that it’s your dad or brother fighting cancer. Would you display their photos when they’re ill?

If it weren’t for Jared posting these pictures Patrick Swayze wouldn’t be in so many prayers today!

Damn paparazzi, leave this poor poor man alone for God’s sake already!!!!! And tabloids too, that also applies to you!!!! This is soo terribly heartbreaking to see such a great man looking so frail and sickly all of the sudden!!! Best wishes to him for a quick road back to recovery, Patrick!!! :)

He had to move his wedding band to his middle finger because it probably slips off his ring finger now.

He was and will always be the sexy and vibrant man who blazed onto the big screen. So underrated and underappreciated as an actor by TPTB. But we the public loved him to bits – and still do. Bigs hugs and love to Patrick…

But you know, if you think about it he looks great considering the circumstances! Hang in there Patrick! *kisses*

this FKING horrible disease!

God bless you and your family Patrick. Your fight is a brave and courageous one, and I hope your next journey is just as wonderful as this one is. Thank you for all you have done for this world. Your spirit will live on forever, no matter how long your body stays on this earth. I wish you nothing but love.

I was so shaken looking at these, then realized I fell straight into Jared’s trap….

Jared, shame on you for being such a totally inhuman scumbag. Let this poor man die in peace and leave him be. Have some decency instead of hounding him for morbid, salacious photos.

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. is not about standards or decency….just money at any price. F U!!

It’s sites like this that create a market for papprazzi scum.
These photos should be taken down. Give the man some privacy! Let him live what’s left of his life in peace.

omg he looks totally different :( Cancer is horrible!!!!!!

i love you patrick! i pray one day you’ll be able to dance like you did in dirty dancing again…i hope you win the battle against cancer. i know you can do it! <3

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.

I was heartbroken seeing these pictures. May God always be with him.

So very heartbreaking :( I wish he and his family nothing but peace and the strength to get through this tragic illness.
