Sad

Patrick Swayze, the actor famed for his role in the 1987 hit movie Dirty Dancing, has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.

Swayze was said to have undergone radical chemotherapy in California in January.

However, there were claims that the disease had already spread to the 55-year-old’s other vital organs. Swayze’s spokeswoman declined to comment last night but the New York Post said that a representative for the actor had confirmed his illness.

Swayze, who is married to Lisa Niemi, an actress, capitalised on the film’s popularity to become one of Hollywood’s most famous leading men. He appeared in the West End of London in 2006 as Nathan Detroit in Guys and Dolls, but refused to see the stage version of Dirty Dancing, complaining that it had ripped the heart and soul from the movie.

Most patients die within six months of pancreatic cancer being diagnosed because symptoms may not appear until it is very advanced. Last month, it was reported in a New York newspaper that Swayze had undergone surgery for a serious “gastro-intestinal procedure”.

George Fisher, the doctor treating Swayze, said: “All of the reports stating the timeframe of his prognosis and his physical side-effects are absolutely untrue.” Dr Fisher added: “We are considerably more optimistic.”

I have read so many different articles about his cancer. Some say that he was diagnosed in the very early stages...

Its hard to know what to believe. Regardless, I hope too he will be ok. I really like his work.

So sad to hear that.
But every day new ways of treating cancer are being found, and nobody should give up hope because miracles do happen and what may be true for one person doesnt mean to say it will be the same outcome for someone else with the same type of cancer.
A friend of mine who died a few years ago was diagnosed with cancer and we were told the maximum time she would live with that type of cancer would be 5 years, other people who were in hopsital with her at that time who had that type of cancer did die approx 4/5 years later but after her treatment she lived for 20 years I think that could be looked on as a cure. and - she didnt die from cancer!

My paternal grandmother died of pancreatic cancer. I was 14 when she died. I don't know if she could have lived longer (she died within 4 months of diagnosis), but she was very afraid and didn't want to know, and isolated herself. She died a very horrible death in the hospital, at least how I remember it.

That was .... geez, that was over 20 years ago (time sure does fly!). Patrick Swayze was one of my mother's favorite actors, she loved his role in Ghost and believed strongly in the message of the movie, so this news was especially poignant for me ... I wondered if he would be joining my mother soon. I know that sounds horrible, but strange things go through your mind sometimes when you hear something about an actor that has close ties with a loved one.

Hopefully he'll fight it successfully and continue his work.

I'm wondering if he had a learning disability or something in his family, there was another reason why my mother respected him, but I don't remember what it was.
