Shocking!!! Patrick Swayze Pancreatic Cancer Death Sentence

I’m totally shocked… if this is really true, Patrick Swayze will have more or less 5 weeks to live unless there’s some kind of miracle.
The actor, 55, was reportedly diagnosed in late January with pancreatic cancer that has spread to other organs.
For the past month, the actor and dancer 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, according to the National Enquirer.
Swayze — who has previosuly attended a clinic to overcome alcoholism after his sister Vicky died from an overdose of painkillers in 1994 — received three doses of chemotherapy and the tumor shrank, but less than his doctors had hoped for — and Patrick was told he should prepare for the end.
“He was told he could have two more treatments, but his cancer was not responding. In short - they held out little hope for a cure,” said an insider.
OMG… praying for Patrick… let’s hope this is just a very bad bad rumor put out there by someone who has nothing else to do.

Update!! It was confirmed by Patrick's rep this story is true but he is responding well to treatment so that miracle can happen... I'm still really shocked with this story and I don't see much hope for pancreatic cancer case but I hope I'm totally wrong!!
Get well soon Patrick!!

My father died of pancreatic cancer and I have studied the disease extensively and here's the bottom line: if they don't catch it before it has spread, usually a person has 3-6 months to live. In my father's case, it was 12 weeks from diagnosis.

Judging from the blog entry, the cancer has spread. Swayze's reps will try to put the best spin on it they can, but it doesn't sound good.

I hope I'm wrong but I'm just trying to give a sober assessment.
