According to the National Enquirer (so take it with a grain of salt), but also being repeated elsewhere, Patrick Swayze has been receiving treatment for pancreatic cancer, but he has not been responding to chemotherapy as well as his doctors had hoped, and have given him a prognosis of five weeks to live.

First Jeff Healey, now Swayze. I hope Sam Elliott doesn't keel over anytime soon.

Pancreatic is the most painful, and deadly form of cancer. Nobody deserves it. Not even the guy in TO WONG FU.

I hope he's able to go peacefully if he isnt able to beat it.

Sad news.

If it's true, then it's very sad.

Though, I find it even sadder that the Sun-Times' two main sources for this story are the Enquirer and Perez Hilton.

(From the Associated Press)

A representative for Patrick Swayze says he is being treated for pancreatic cancer but is well enough to continue working.

The "Dirty Dancing" actor has a very limited amount of disease and appears to be responding well to treatment, according to Dr. George Fisher, Swayze's physician. The doctor's prognosis was included in a statement released Wednesday by Swayze's representative, Annett Wolf.

"Patrick is continuing his normal schedule during this time, which includes working on upcoming projects," the statement said.

"F*cking Chuck Norris."

I lost my uncle to pancreatic cancer 3 years ago. It's just awful, and the survival statistics for it aren't good at all. My uncle lost both of his siblings to the same disease.

I hope he pulls through. I wouldn't wish what we went through on anybody.

You need those Jack episodes to build to these episodes. The Jack scene was really well done though even if his touchdown dance was sorry. This episode was just great. We got conformations on things we thought we knew.
