    Patrick Swayze has cancer; Doctors give him 5 weeks to live

    PATRICK SWAYZE HAS 5 WEEKS TO LIVE


    Patrick Swayze has five weeks to live, The NATIONAL ENQUIRER has learned.

    In a shocking world exclusive, The NATIONAL ENQUIRER has uncovered the devastating news that the beloved Hollywood actor and dancer was diagnosed in late January with pancreatic cancer that has spread to other organs.

    Full details are in the print edition of the NATIONAL ENQUIRER that goes on sale tomorrow.

    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 are no longer optimistic that the treatments will be successful.

    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 away from the Stanford Cancer Center, where the actor 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 end.

    "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," said an insider.

    The man who danced into the hearts of audiences worldwide in the 1980s in Dirty Dancing and then broke them in the poignant love story Ghost in the early '90s has lost more than 20 pounds in the past few weeks and is restricted to a liquid diet because he has trouble keeping down solid food, added the insider.

    "It's time to start praying for a miracle."

    Reports Conflict Over Swayze Terminal Cancer Claim
    Enquirer Reports 'Dirty Dancing Star' Has Five Weeks To Live


    There are conflicting reports out about "Dirty Dancing" star Patrick Swayze suffering from terminal cancer.

    The National Enquirer claimed in an online report Wednesday that it has learned in a "shocking world exclusive" that Swayze was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in January and only has five weeks to live.

    The Enquirer also said that the cancer has spread to other organs. The report said that Swayze, 55, is receiving radical chemotherapy treatment as an outpatient at the Stanford Medical Center-- minutes from the Palo Alto, Calif., airport, where the actor and his wife, Lisa Niemi, have been flying in to on their private plane.

    However, a "very good source" told celebrity blogger Perez Hilton said that Swayze has been at rehearsals on a new cheerleading movie at a studio in Century City, Calif., and "definitely does not look like he has five 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 said on Hilton's blog.

    Fox News online, which also reported on the Enquirer's report, said that a call to Swayze's representatives have not been returned.

    The Chicago Sun-Times reported that Swayze had surgery for a "serious gastro-intestinal procedure" at a California hospital in early February.

    Swayze has also starred in such films as "Ghost" and "Road House." He has been married to Niemi since 1975.

    Frankly I hope he's making ANY sort of abomination of a movie rather than having 5 weeks to live.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    I think I'll wait until I read or hear something from a more reliable source than the Enquirer before I really believe this news.

    They should Bring It On.

    Is there a Roadhouse Curse? Jeff Healy just died of cancer, Patrick Swayze may have cancer, Kelly Lynch's career is in the toilet and look what happened to poor Terry Funk.

    It's only March, but this is the Post of the Year, as far as I'm concerned.

    I just want to see more of Don Swayze, his brother. Maybe a Lifetime bio-pic.

    The name of his movie would be, "When Genes Just Miss: The Don Swayze Story.""

    Wasn't he on a movie that they showed on MST3K? I know Martin Sheen's brother Joe Estevez was in one of them.

    I hope this is wrong. The National Enquirer isn't my first source for news though. I'm waiting for a press release/confrence from Swayze. If he does have cancer however, I am deeply saddened. He's a very good actor. Let's hope it's just another lie from the National Enquirer.
    If you can't build a winning team with that core a fire-sale isn't the solution. Selling the franchise, moving them to Nashville and converting GABP into a used car lot is.

    No, but there was this.

    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    I hate it when things like this happen to people that are my age.

    In this case, really close to my age. Swayze and I were born on the same day 8/18/52.

    Pay attention to the open sky
