Patrick Swayze Breaking News and Photos
Legendary actor Patrick Swayze has passed away at the age of 57 after a two-year battle with pancreatic cancer.
Patrick is best known for his roles in Ghost and Dirty Dancing.
According to his publicist, Annett Wolf, “Patrick Swayze passed away peacefully today with family at his side after facing the challenges of his illness for the last 20 months.”
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Patrick‘s family and friends.
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.”

Cancer-stricken actor Patrick Swayze will be co-writing a book with his wife, Lisa.
According to EW, the couple will be taking offers next week for — what’s rumored to be — an inspirational-type tome.
The 56-year-old actor is currently undergoing a very public battle with pancreatic cancer. “I am alive and plan on continuing to stay that way,” Patrick said recently.
His latest A&E series, The Beast, premiered on January 15.
The 55-year-old Dirty Dancing actor was diagnosed in late January with pancreatic cancer that has spread to other organs. Swayze has been receiving treatment at Stanford University’s cancer center in Palo Alto for radical chemotherapy.
“He was told he could have two more treatments, but his cancer was not responding. In short – they held out little hope for a cure,” said an insider.
The NY Post has confirmed the news with his publicist, saying, “He’s suffering from pancreatic cancer, which could tragically bring down the curtain on his remarkably diverse career… The average life expectancy is six to nine months, with only 4 percent of patients living more than five years.”
Pray for a miracle!!
UPDATE: Swayze‘s doctor, Dr. Patrick George, tells People: “Patrick has a very limited amount of disease and he appears to be responding well to treatment thus far. All of the reports stating the time frame of his prognosis and his physical side effects are absolutely untrue. We are considerably more optimistic.”
Swayze‘s rep adds: “Patrick is continuing his normal schedule during this time, which includes working on upcoming projects. The outpouring of support and concern he has already received from the public is deeply appreciated by Patrick and his family.”
