I felt sad when I read that Patrick Swayze has Pancreatic Cancer. His publicist released a statement that Patrick might only have a few weeks to live. Usually, patients who are diagnosed with this kind of cancer have only a couple of months to live. I hope he is the exception.
He was diagnosed with the cancer a month ago. His doctor said that he is responding very well to treatment and he is considerably optimistic. The average life expectancy for a newly diagnosed patient is six to nine months, with only 4 percent of victims surviving more than five years.
I first saw Patrick Swayze in the mini-series 'North and South'. I loved him in the movie "Ghost', it's one of the few movies that leaves me teary-eyed no matter how many times I've seen it. He is a great dancer, have you seen 'Dirty Dancing'? He seems to be such a great guy, I have never read any bad story about him. I hope that he will get through this just fine.
