Patrick Swayze is a well-known actor, who starred in Dirty Dancing and Ghost and he has been fighting with pancreatic cancer for the last 20 months.
Annett Wolf, Patrick Swayze’s publicist, told to the press that Mr. Swayze died on Monday with family on his side. Swayze, 57, has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in January 2008 and the doctors only gave him 6 months to live, though he survived for another 14 months.
After he survived the 6 months the doctors predicted, he was planning to play in “The Beast”, a drama series for A&E and already filmed a season.
“How do you nurture a positive attitude when all the statistics say you’re a dead man?” he said to Bill Carter of The New York Times last October. “You go to work.”
Patrick Swayze had the role of an undercover F.B.I. agent and had the premiere in January. Just before the series began, Patrick Swayze has been invited on ABC to Barbara Walters Special and he talked about his illness, where he said: “I keep my heart and my soul and my spirit open to miracles.”
Unfortunately, people didn’t even know it’s correct name, because a lot of them are searching for Patrick Swazy, which is sad.
RIP Patrick Swayze.
