Patrick Swayze dies at 57. Pancreatic Cancer.
Actor Patrick Swayze has died at the age of 57 after a long, debilitating battling with pancreatic cancer, since he was diagnosed with the disease in January 2008.
Swayze’s battle against the stage 4 pancreatic cancer showcased the fighting spirit that made him such a believable silver screen protagonist.
He made headlines with his blunt introspection regarding his grave condition when he told Barbara Walters, “I’d say five years is pretty wishful thinking — two years seems likely if you’re going to believe statistics. I want to last until they find a cure, which means I’d better get a fire under it.”
Rest In Peace, Beast 🙂
