he is NOT going to die in 'hours days or weeks' his private doctor had to issue a statement about it IT IS JUST A RUMOUR! They say he is responding well to treatment and may actually make a full recovery, if by chance he WILL die of it, then the life expectancy of anyone with pancreatic cancer is abour 4 years so he's not going anywhere anytime soon!

It must be so very sad for him and his family. Yes, he has millions. He lived a life of 'grandeur'. But alas, money, fame, and fortune can not save you from something that fate had in mind for you.
I have known a beautiful person who died from cancer. I have been diagnosed myself and the cancer had not gone away completely. It's a very scary and sad thing, whether you are rich or poor. To know that life is going to slip by one day, and if you fear the afterlife, or aren't sure as to what things you did wrong and right in your life, well...these are all things that go through your head.
For anyone dying from it, it's very, very sad...no matter how sky high the numbers in the bank are.

He's not gonna die in a few weeks. That was a lie to sell tabiloid papers. He does have cancer but don't buy the lie.

I think the golden rule applies here. How would you like it if I scoffed at you having cancer? Show a little respect.

How have you contributed to society lately, besides pushing your opinions on others?

I'm not saying your not entitled to your opinions, but when you use diction as abrasive and uncaring as that, no one is going to want to listen to you.

Face it, everybody cares more that Patrick Swayze is dying, than if you were to be diagnosed with the same condition (with the exception of people who know you). You could drop dead tomorrow and I wouldn't give a rats ass, and you could say the same thing about me.

But if a celebrity that I know about dies, I want to know about. Even if I have no emotional reaction to it, I want to at least know that it happened. Hence, the media serves a purpose.

If you spend your life wondering why people care more about you, or why people make more money than you for doing less work, your going to be a miserable person. Get over it.

Patrick Swayze was part of a business entity that generated millions upon millions of dollars. He was one of the key factors generating the revenue so he was paid handsomely. Was he overpaid? Absolutely not, someone felt that he was worth the expense because in doing so, they would be making money.

As the result of this business entity the characters that he played in those movies were well known to people all over the world. People care about him the same way they would an acquaintence back in college or high school, or a co-worker whom they new casually from the past.

His illness is significant because we know of him, and not of the guy dying of cancer down the block. If my next door neighbor were to be diagnosed with the same condition, I'd want to know about it. That is news to me. I knew him on some level and I find it important. Are you saying that the media should NOT report on his illness.

KoalaMeatPie you're being an idiot. I mean seriously, a complete idiot. There's a reason this is important. I get some of your points, but I'm intelligent enough to know why this effects a lot of people. Mr. Swayze was in what is considered an American "Classic". Dirty Dancing is one of the most watched movies in American History, and is considered one of the best. It's also a huge "chick flick". Nearly EVERY female that grew up with that movie loved it..so it does have a bit of a connection with a LOT of people who watched the movie over the years since it was released. That movie alone is reason enough.

Yes there are people that are personally more important to people, and the media does tend to take things to the extreme in these cases. My father was much more important to me than some actor and he died of cancer in 1993 when I was 11 years old. That's straight truth from someone that had their on father die of the disease...I still won't mock someone else for

Wow. People make me frown.

Sucks that he has cancer, but I doubt he cares that we know about it.

It's also slightly ridiculous that fancylad seems to think the cure for boredom is celebrity gossip.

KoalaMeatPie. Wow, you really are a tragic c*nt. Imagine being so sad that you get that heated on a tiny website about such a nothing story. You are one person that REALLY needs to get out more. God, how many more of these tedious, unoriginal, little kn*bs am i going to encounter?

that's said not to be true - he does have cancer, but it's fine and he almost likely won't die.

The only thing worth making a big deal about is that hopefully this will raise awareness and help come closer to a cure, or even a higher life expectancy for those who have it.

Sad news. Hopefully this will raise attention to it from those who respected him as an actor.

Also, I've seen these updates since I heard about this yesterday:
