Patrick Swayze Has Died

The National Enquirer reported Swayze was diagnosed in late January, and the cancer has spread to other parts of his body.

Patrick, 57, has been traveling to Stanford University’s cancer center with his wife Lisa Niemi for chemotherapy treatments, the Enquirer reported.

An insider said: “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.

“It’s time to start praying for a miracle.”

More from the source of the article.

Update: Patrick Swayze died last night at the tender age of 57.

In late 2008, Swayze denied claims made by tabloids that the cancer had spread to his liver.[38] However, in an interview with Barbara Walters which aired in January 2009, Swayze admitted that he had a “tiny little mass” in his liver. On January 9, 2009, Swayze was hospitalized with pneumonia. The pneumonia was said to be a complication of chemotherapy treatments for Swayze’s cancer.[39] On January 16, he was released from the hospital to rest at home with his wife.[40] On April 19, 2009, doctors informed Swayze that the cancer had again metastasized to his liver.[41] Swayze stated that his chain smoking probably “had something to do with” the development of his disease. Photos taken of a gaunt Swayze in the months before his death showed him continuing to smoke.[42][43]

  1. I can’t believe that Patrick Swayze is dying. Dirty Dancing has been on cable at least once a week. Is this why? I never tire of that film, as with Black Dog. He was great in that one too. We’ll miss you. I’m sure that he will fight this with all he has, and WIN. Good luck!!

  2. The newspapers are reporting that he is responding well to treatment. In late May, he was spotted at a basketball game. However, he did rewrite his will and transfer all of this money to his wife.

    It’s been months and he’s still alive. Standford Medical Center is giving him longer to live.

  3. Omg I Cant Believe My FAVORITE Actor is Dying =(
