Health and death of Patrick Swayze
Swayze was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in late January 2008, and underwent chemotherapy and other treatments at the Stanford University Medical Center. On March 5, 2008, a Reuters article reported that Swayze "has a very limited amount of disease, and he appears to be responding well to treatment thus far". Swayze's doctor confirmed that the actor was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, but insisted he was not as close to death as reports suggest. Specifically, Swayze was diagnosed with a type of pancreatic tumor called Intraductal Papillary Mucinous Neoplasm (IPMN).

Swayze acknowledged that his chain smoking probably "had something to do with" the development of his disease. Research has shown a link between cigarette smoking and the development of cancer of the pancreas. Swayze died on September 14, 2009, at age 57.

Patrick Swayze had a beautiful soul. You could tell by looking at him that he was an angel. He seemed to be so happy in life and its such a shame his time came before he was ready. What a fighter he was against his cancer and what a blessing we all had for having him entertain us all these years. Rest in Peace Patrick, You will be missed greatly! Sky Avery

Patrick Swazye was one of the most likable celebrities in Hollywood. We love him in all the cheesy movies. I watch 'Road House' a few times a year. I have the DVD. I also have 'Dirty Dancing'. He was funny on Saturday Night Live. I have a VHS copy of Patrick Swayze in "Hans and Frans" skit. I also have a spoof he did on 'Ghost' with Victoria Jackson. I didn't like the Chippendale skit - I don't know why media always show that skit and not the other ones. Anyway.. We knew his time was coming close... but, still.. it's very sad that he's gone. God bless. Thank you for the good time. Good memories. ============ * A lot of Hollywood legends passed. But, Patrick Swayze was our "Dude". He was so close to us. He was our buddy...
