Patrick Swayze Dies at 57

Patrick SwayzePatrick Swayze, best known for his roles in Ghost (1990) and Dirty Dancing (1987), died yesterday after a long battle with pancreatic cancer. Swayze, who studied dance at his mother’s studio in Houston, was as talented a dancer as he was an actor. He portrayed Danny Zuko in the original Broadway production of Grease. He also toured and performed on Broadway in the musical Chicago and appeared in a London production of Guys and Dolls. Even while undergoing treatment for pancreatic cancer, Swayze continued to work. He appeared in the A&E television series The Beast which aired during the early part of 2009. Patrick Swayze’s movies made us laugh, cry, and cheer out loud. He taught us that you can dance and look cool at the same time. His performances will be watched and enjoyed for years to come.

Patrick Swayze showed modern medicine that a strong spirit can outlive cancer prognoses big time.

However, to survive cancer, you have to do everything right:

believe you can battle cancer +
modern medicine +
alternative medicine +
live healthy +
reduce stress +
increase love , or like Patrick Swayze said:
"you gotta have a dog".

Our condolences to Lisa, Patrick's friends and family.

It is heartbreaking and yet uplifting to see patients of this cancer outlive their prognosis, but still so sad to hear about his death. My great aunt just died days ago of Pancreatic cancer, and her sister died of it several years ago. It is such a painful thing to watch, knowing that they are suffering and even with the care of a nurse, it is just knowing that their days are numbered that makes it so hard. Prayers go out to his family.

This is a terrible loss, for his wife-first, then for his extended family and friends, then for Hollywood. He was a great actor and now cancer took his life. Well, life is short and the unexpected does happen!
