Patrick Swazye Has Cancer
« on: March 08, 2008, 12:54:52 AM »
I just found out Patrick Swazye has pancreatic cancer. I feel very sad about this. I have always liked his acting, and thought he was a nice person from all of the interviews I have seen of him over the years. My heart breaks for him and his family. From my understanding, pancreatic cancer is virtually incurable. Lord have mercy on him! We all need to keep him in our prayers.

FYI, I have read about his cancer on several websites. Wikipedia has it documented in case there are any concerns  :D  (my teachers would crucify me for siting wikipedia)

Sad indeed.  I don't think he's a great actor but he has been in many movies I do enjoy such as Red Dawn, Road House, Ghost.  Lord have mercy.

OB, your teachers would crucify you even more for using siting in place of citing!

Prayers for him and his family.

I never really cared for him as an actor.  Like Scamandrius, I did kinda like Red Dawn.  And I've yet to meet a girl thus far who doesn't go crazy for Dirty Dancing.  Now I...had...the time of my life...and I owe it all to you... :D

My mom was an oncology nurse for over 10 years. In all that time, she never saw one person recover from pancreatic cancer. They were usually just treated for their symptoms and sent home to die.

Lord have mercy on Your servant Patrick.

Lord, have mercy! It's a very nasty form of cancer, very dangerous (metastasizes in the brain), and often terribly painful.

Sure you have... I despise the movie!   :laugh:

I hated that movie.  And I didn't like Ghost either - except Whoopi was pretty funny.

Not a big fan of Patrick - but still, have mercy on him.

Lord have mercy on Patrick!   My father died of pancreatic cancer...he was diagnosed with it and died three weeks later.  His doctor was shocked that all he was taking for pain was extra strength Tylenol! :o  But in the last week of his life (he had Hospice care...a truly incredible service) he terrible pain was managed with Morphine.

My dad is the same way.  He went in once for a "little pain in his abdomen" and it turned out to be a appendicitis that was beginning to go gangrene!!  :o  The doctor was shocked. 

That must have been very hard to loose your father so quickly.  Memory Eternal.

An update on Patrick Swazye's condition -

Patrick Swayze to begin shooting new cable series

NEW YORK (AP) — Patrick Swayze is going back to work. The "Dirty Dancing" actor, who was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer earlier this year, will begin shooting his new A&E series "The Beast" in Chicago this summer, the cable network announced Monday.

A&E ordered 13 episodes of the one-hour drama, which stars Swayze, 55, as an unorthodox FBI agent who trains — and hazes — his new partner (portrayed by Travis Fimmel). It is scheduled to premiere early next year.

"I have searched for quite a long time to find a character that is this multi-layered, unpredictable and downright entertaining, as well as a project this current and cutting-edged," Swayze said in a statement.

"There are constant twists and turns, because we never know what this `Charles Barker' is going to do next! Not only is the show driven by plot, but as important, it's character driven," Swayze said.

The actor shot "The Beast" pilot last December, months before his cancer diagnosis surfaced in news reports.

Swayze's representative, Annett Wolf, confirmed to The Associated Press in early March that he was undergoing treatment for pancreatic cancer; meanwhile, his physician Dr. George Fisher issued a hopeful statement, saying Swayze had "a very limited amount of disease" and appeared "to be responding well to treatment."

Wolf declined comment Tuesday. A&E spokesman Dan Silberman said the network wasn't commenting beyond its news release announcing the greenlit series and statement from executive Bob DeBitetto, who professed to be "thrilled to have Patrick on board."

The New York Times reported earlier this week that Swayze will likely continue his treatment during four months of filming in Chicago. In an interview, DeBitetto told the Times that Swayze had benefitted by care including chemotherapy and experimental drugs.

"Obviously we've had candid conversations with him and his doctors, and we have a fairly high degree of expectation that Patrick will be good to work a full production schedule," said DeBitetto, adding, "No one is using words like cured or remission or miracle."
