Report: Patrick Swayze Diagnosed with Cancer

by at . Comments

The following piece of entertainment news was taken from The National Enquirer, making it less reliable than Britney Spears when called in to court.

We hope we'll be able to print a retraction of this shortly, but the aforementioned tabloid states that Patrick Swayze has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. He only has five weeks to live, the newspaper reports.

"For the past month, Patrick, 55, 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," states the magazine.

An insider reportedly said that: "He was told he could have two more treatments, but his cancer was not responding. In short - they held out little hope for a cure."

Swayze is best known for his role in Dirty Dancing, the dance-off classic that spawned such hits years later as You Got Served and Step Up 2 the Streets.
