Patrick Swayze has 5 Weeks To Live

The 55 year-old actor made famous in the movies “Dirty Dancing” and “Ghost” was diagnosed in late January with pancreatic cancer. It’s now spread to other organs.

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.

  1. Heard his friend Whoopi Goldberg say yesterday that although she hadn’t spoken with P.S., she’d heard his doctors were hopeful that the treatments were having a positive effect. She said that the reports of a definitive period of time left was speculative on the part of the tabloids. It’s all hearsay one way or the other. Sad news.

  2. I lost my mom to pancreatic cancer. My prayers are with everyone to has suffered from this disease. There needs to be more research for this cause!
