Well I guess Patrick Swayze reads the gossip rags ’cause the actor is responding to all those “lies” about him being on his death bed.
If you recall, last Friday I told you that Patrick Swayze’s cancer had spread to his liver. Guess I was wrong.
Continuing to remain positive as he battles pancreatic cancer, Patrick Swayze is hitting back against tabloid rumors about his health in an exclusive statement to PEOPLE…
“The only thorn in my side being that many tabloids have been consistently reporting lies and false information about me and those close to me. And latest, they’re reporting that I’m on my last legs and saying goodbye to my tearful family!
Pancreatic cancer is an aggressive disease and from the moment I was diagnosed, I knew I was in for the fight of my life. It’s a battle, and so far, I’ve been winning. I’m one of the lucky few that responds well to treatment.
It’s upsetting that the shoddy and reckless reporting from these publications cast a negative shadow on the positive and good fight I’m fighting. For me, my family, and those close to me, it amounts to downright emotional cruelty. That makes me angry when hope is so precious.”
He concludes, “As always, I appreciate all the love and support people have sent and continue to send my way. I thank you.”
Oops, my bad. Sorry about that Patrick. But thanks for checking in and letting us know what’s really going on. You know, honesty is the best way to keep the rumors at bay.
