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.”
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. 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. On January 16, he was released from the hospital to rest at home with his wife. On April 19, 2009, doctors informed Swayze that the cancer had again metastasized to his liver. 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.
