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.
