Patrick Swayze diagnosed
with pancreatic cancer

Actor Patrick Swayze has
been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, a statement from the actor's reps said.
Swayze's physician Dr. George Fisher states, "Patrick has a very limited
amount of disease and he appears to be responding well to treatment thus far.
All of the reports stating the timeframe of his prognosis and his physical side
effects are absolutely untrue. We are considerably more optimistic."
He has
been continuing with his regular schedule, which includes upcoming projects, the
statement said.
It was widely reported on the Internet Wednesday that Swayze
was in dire condition, couldn't eat solid food and only had a few weeks to live.
Swayze, 55, rose to fame in 1987 in the summer love classic "Dirty Dancing,"
and got a Golden Globe Nomination for his portrayal of Demi Moore's murdered
love in 'Ghost.' Swayze has been married to Lisa Niemi since 1975.
American Cancer Society says that only 23 percent of patients diagnosed with
pancreatic cancer are alive after one year.

I know he'll always be remembered for Dirty Dancing & Ghost, but to me this is the best thing he ever put on tape. I believe this was Chris Farley's debut episode of SNL:
