Actor Patrick Swayze Diagnosed With Cancer

Actor Patrick Swayze has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and is currently undergoing treatment.


"Patrick has a very limited amount of disease and he appears to be responding well to treatment so far,"
Dr. George Fisher, Swayze's personal physician, said in a statement. "All of the reports stating the timeframe of his prognosis and his physical side effects are absolutely untrue."

The 55 year old actor was recently cast as a gay cheerleading instructor in Fired Up, a big-screen comedy that began shooting last month and stars in the yet to be released indie drama Powder Blue.

Swayze is best known for a string of hits in the 1980s and 1990s that included Ghost, Point Break, Road House and the career-changer, Dirty Dancing, in which he played Catskills bad boy Johnny Castle.
