Actor Patrick Swayze diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and told he has five weeks to live...
Patrick Swayze, best known for his role in Dirty Dancing, has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and told that he has just five weeks to live.
Swayze, 55, has been sick with the disease since he was diagnosed in late January with pancreatic cancer. The cancer has since spread to other organs and now the actor/dancer is dying.
For the past month, Swayze 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, according to the National Enquirer.
Swayze received three treatments of chemotherapy, causing the tumor to shrink, but less than his doctors had hoped for. He was then told that he should prepare for the end.

e "Dirty Dancing" actor has a very limited amount of disease and appears to be responding well to treatment, according to Dr. George Fisher, Swayze's physician. Fisher's prognosis was included in a statement released Wednesday by Swayze's representative, Annett Wolf. "Patrick is continuing his normal schedule during this time, which includes working on upcoming projects," the statement said. It also said earlier reports that Swayze had a matter of weeks to live were exaggerated. "All of the reports stating the timeframe of his prognosis and his physical side effects are absolutely untrue. We are considerably more optimistic."

From what MSN news reported, pancreatic cancer is usually gone undetected until jaundice appears and by that time is usually too advanced to treat successfully. The symptoms are disguised and thought to be liver related instead of pancreatic related prior to diagnosis.
As with any cancer, early diagnosis and treatment are essential, hopefully his was detected early enough and chemotherapy and/or radiation will help.
My dad, I miss him every day.
