Patrick Swayze Has Pancreatic Cancer

Patrick Swayze, 55, has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. The National Enquirer broke the story and reported that Swayze only had weeks to live, but Dr. George Fisher, his physician, told US Magazine:

"Patrick has a very limited amount of disease and he appears to be responding well to treatment thus far. All of the reports stating the timeframe of his prognosis and his physical side effects are absolutely untrue. We are considerably more optimistic."

Because pancreatic cancer is very difficult to treat once it has progressed, it's great to know that Swayze's doctor believes his disease is limited and that they are optimistic.
