'80s and '90s heartthrob Patrick Swayze shocked the entertainment world earlier this year when he revealed that he was suffering from pancreatic cancer, one of the most devastating and fatal forms of the disease which has a notoriously low recovery rate. The gossip rags pounced on the story last March, erroneously claiming that Swayze had only weeks to live.
We're happy to report that the actor, who made the ladies swoon with hunky roles in Dirty Dancing and Ghost, has released a statement updating fans on his progress, saying, "I am continuing treatment at Stanford and the great news is I continue to respond well." In the statement, the actor also went on to talk about recent outings with his longtime wife Lisa, so it seems that Swayze is on his way to beating and surviving the disease. We wish him a full and speedy recovery.
