Doctors: Patrick Swayze Doing Well

Bad news: Patrick Swayze still has cancer. Good news: He's not dying anytime soon. Swayze's doctor talked to People magazine about his patient’s diagnosis and treatments. Here's what he had to say:

"Patrick has a very limited amount of disease and he appears to be responding well to treatment thus far," Dr. George Fisher says in a statement. "All of the reports stating the time frame of his prognosis and his physical side effects are absolutely untrue. We are considerably more optimistic."

The actor's rep adds: "Patrick is continuing his normal schedule during this time, which includes working on upcoming projects. The outpouring of support and concern he has already received from the public is deeply appreciated by Patrick and his family."

Leave it to the National Enquirer to claim he only has a few weeks to live. We wish Patrick and his family the best during this difficult time--stay optimist!!
