Patrick Swayze cancer confirmed
The actor confirmed that he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in March, but his publicist said he was responding well to treatment. He spent the summer filming the upcoming A&E series "The Beast," set to air in January. Costar Travis Fimmel said he had "good energy" during the months-long shoot.
Despite tabloid reports that he doesn't have much time left to live, Swayze issued a statement in December confirming his good health.
