Earlier I posted a story from The National Enquirer that claimed 55-year-old Patrick Swayze has pancreatic cancer. His rep has confirmed the story to PageSix.com. He said Patrick was diagnosed about a month ago. Patrick is receiving treatment at Stanford University Medical Center.
I really thought the story was all sorts of bogus. This is heartbreaking…
UPDATE: His rep issued this statement to TMZ, “Patrick Swayze has been diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer and is currently undergoing treatment. Patrick’s physician Dr. George Fisher states, ‘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 timeframe of his prognosis and his physical side effects are absolutely untrue. We are considerably more optimistic.’ 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.”
Good thoughts for the Swayze!
