    Any other sources. Kind to have to question it when it comes from the National Enquirer.

    Hope it's not true.

    That's one of the worst forms of cancer. My wife's father had it and he went from a healthy man to almost nothing before he passed away.

    Report: Patrick Swayze Diagnosed With Pancreatic Cancer, Has Five Weeks to Live

    Patrick Swayze and his wife Lisa Niemi.

    "Dirty Dancing" star Patrick Swayze was diagnosed in late January with pancreatic cancer that has spread to other organs and he has five weeks left to live, according to the National Enquirer.
    For the past month, Patrick, 55, has been traveling to Stanford University's prestigious cancer center in Palo Alto for radical chemotherapy, but his doctors no longer are optimistic that the treatments will be successful, the Enquirer says.
    FOXNews.com's calls to Swayze's reps were not immediately returned. But a "very good source" reportedly told blogger Perez Hilton that Swayze has seemed fine lately.
    "Patrick has been at rehearsals for a new cheerleading movie at Century City studio frequently lately, and he definitely does not look like he has 5 more weeks of life left…i'm not sure of his medical condition(s), but if he is gravely ill, he is hiding it very well," the source wrote.
    According to the Enquirer, Patrick and his wife, Lisa Niemi — who both have pilot's licenses — have been flying their private Beechcraft plane into Palo Alto's airport, minutes from the Stanford Cancer Center, where the actor reportedly has received outpatient treatment.
    /**/
    He received three doses of chemotherapy and the tumor shrank, but less than his doctors had hoped for — and Patrick was told he should prepare for the worst, the Enquirer reports.
    "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," an insider reportedly said.

    That is kind of odd. No not a conspiracy or anything but it is odd that Healy goes and now Swayze is not doing well.

    I loved The Outsiders as well. Did you know that SE Hinton was in high school when she wrote it?

    What a bummer. Like most guys I am a sucker for roadhouse.

    I loved red dawn as a kid and still do and another movie that is not very highly acclaimed that he is in Youngblood. Great hockey movie. I always have loved that movie.

    Pancreatic cancer is a tough diagnosis. MY father has prostate cancer right now and it is isolated but our biggest fear was that it had spread to that area in some way.

    I'm a huge fan of Roadhouse. It's a simple yet classic film. I think he was one of the most underrated and underappreciated actors of the last 30 years. He was a very good actor

    Being a movie star, I'm sure by now he has one of those amazing Tempurpedic mattresses.
