Patrick Swayze Lashes Out at Careless Reporters

Patrick Swayze is winning his fight against cancer, and he wants everyone to know it. Especially reporters who insist on printing articles saying that he’s suffering. Patrick, who has working on his new show The Beast says the information the public is reading about him is false.

He says, "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. As always, I appreciate all the love and support people have sent, and continue to send, my way. I thank you."

How sad that is that people won’t leave him alone! It sounds like Patrick just wants the truth to be written about him, for his own sanity, and for the sake of his poor family! Hopefully this latest statement will put the reporters in their place.
