Patrick Swayze

Several websites are reporting that actor Patrick Swayze's battle with pancreatic cancer is worsening.

Patrick recently got word that the cancer had spread to his liver and that is what his doctors said would begin the countdown to the end," a source told National Enquirer magazine.

If true, this is terrible news. Pancreatic cancer is one of the most aggressive and difficult-to-treat of all cancers. Long-term survivability is uncommon. I wish him and his family the best through this horrible time.

I thought Patrick Swayze was fantastic in Ghost and Dirty Dancing, although his most entertaining shoot ever may have been with Chris Farley on the Chippendales SNL segment...

For those who never saw the Swayze Chippendale's scene (or just want to see it again), here's a link:

I loved Farley and I'm so sad about Swayze.

Thanks. That's arguably the best SNL skit ever, IMHO.

This does not relate to Swayze but I just read in the New York Times that Johnson & Johnson is getting into your business:

I look forward to your comments on the new filler, Evolence.

Patrick Swayze himself has said that this news is UNtrue.

"The only thorn in my side being that many tabloids have been consistently reporting lies and false information about me and those close to me," said Swayze in a statement to the press who also added that he knows he is in "the fight for his life," but that it is a fight that he "is winning."

"I'm one of the lucky few that responds well to treatment," added Swayze.

Let's hope that that is true...

This makes me sad. Patrick Swayze is an immensely talented entertainer who exudes a heart of gold. It seems it really is always the "good ones" who go first.
