Swayze's Mom Speaks Out

| Filed under: Patrick Swayze

wenn661130__opt1.jpg

Patrick Swayze has remained tight-lipped since news of his fight with pancreatic cancer became public.

Friends and former colleagues have spoken out about the Dirty Dancing star, and now his mom is talking publicly about her ailing son.

“He doesn’t deserve to get this,” Patrick’s 81-year-old mother, Patsy, told the National Enquirer. “He just doesn’t deserve it. He’s got such a big heart. He’s been such a good and generous and thoughtful person. It breaks my heart to know he’s suffering. But he bears it and he’s determined to beat this. He’s hanging in there and getting the best treatment he can.”

Patsy told the mag that her son has been ‘humbled’ by the support he has received since word of his illness became public. And a family insider says that Swayze has been strong for the people around him.

“Patrick as usual, is worried more about other people than himself."

Stay strong (and smoke less)!

    Aw jeez… I feel so for his mother. My father died of pancreatic cancer, and his mother was still alive to see this happen. No mother should see a child die no matter how old. My heart goes out to her.

    Perez, PLEASE. This man is dying. As I mentioned in an earlier post, from professional experience I can tell you that smoking is NOT going to affect his outcome. He has pancreatic cancer. Kicking the habit now will only add to the discomfort he is in, something I'm sure his doctors have discussed with him. Withdrawal on top of chemo and the symptoms associated with this cancer do not add up. Please, people need to be more educated about terminal illness. These anti-smoking posts, while useful elsewhere, are just plain wrong and go against a palliative approach here.

  26. James says – reply to this


    26

    Dude had it coming. Just my opinion. You can't smoke 3 packs a day and expect to live forever. I wasn't a fan of his. I didn't like Dirty Dancing either. That was a chick flick anyway. I don't like musicals either. Most straight men don't as a rule.
    You don't have to like something because the closet cases who run the award shows in Hollywood say it's good.

    34

    Hell yea smoke less. Homeboy smoke three damn PACKS A DAY!!! I can barely smoke more than four cigarettes a day and he happily goes through 60 fuckin cigarettes a day. He needs to start using whatever Lindsay BLOHAN is using to help him quit.

  35. Laurel says – reply to this


    35

    Shut up with the smoking already…you do know that getting fucked in the ass during anonymous sex is deadlier than smoking, right? So why don't you give up gay sex, you moron.

  36. Susie says – reply to this


    36

    Is Patrick's mom implying that other people who get cancer "deserve it"? If the world worked that way, no one would have cancer except Daumer, Hitler, and most of Death Row.

  37. Laura says – reply to this


    37

    Please don't mention smoking as if that is the only cause of pancreatic cancer. my mom passed away this past november from pan. can. and she never smoked a cigarette in her life..she was 55 too. Although smoking can contribute, its not the only cause- and it certainly shouldnt be rubbed in anybody's face after theyre diagnosed with probably the most deadliest cancers of all. just letting you know

  38. Tom says – reply to this


    38

    Perez, I wish you would take some time and get off your fat ass and visit and oncology center or something rather than spout your bullshit. Take a look at a person who is under chemo and see how hard it is. Maybe somebody should start a PIC-Line one one of your arms and see if you can handle it. Get some education about the disease before ya spout your dumb shit on your site.

  39. Susie says – reply to this


    39

    Smoking probably gave him the cancer, but stopping now won't cure him. Folks, face the facts… he'll be gone within six months. This cancer is BAD.

    OMG NOOOOO!!!! I've loved PS since I first saw him in "Road House"! He was absolutly TERRIFIC in "Dirty Dancing"!…….& "Ghost" is my favorite movie of all time….he & Demi were fantastic! I watch it everytime it comes on TV> He will beat this! Hang in there PS, we know u can do it!! Bless his Mother too, she sounds like a terrific person!

  43. hotnspicy says – reply to this


    43

    WTF?! So who the fuck really does this disease. Stupid bitch! He got the cancer b/c of the 3 pack a day habit. What about the person who lives a clean and happy life with a big heart and still gets the disease that leaves his family devasted. Whatever and he is still smoking? See you dude.. Thanks for Dirty Dancing.

  44. laura says – reply to this


    44

    Please don't mention smoking as if that is the only cause of pancreatic cancer. my mom passed away this past november from pan. can. and she never smoked a cigarette in her life..she was 55 too. she had beaten the cancer, but died because of a blood clot after surgery- so it is beatable. Although smoking can contribute, its not the only cause- and it certainly shouldnt be rubbed in anybody's face after theyre diagnosed with the most deadliest cancers of all. just letting you know that when someones batlling death its not the time to be judgmental. until youve been there or someone in you family has, you wouldnt understand. you actually offended me for the first time perez

    50

    Smoking less is not going to cure him. Now what matters is quality of life, not quantity of life. Don't bother quiting smoking if you are going to feel uncomfortable from it. smoke away, but reconcile relationships and spend quality time with the ones you love. when my dad got sick with cancer, i was not about to tell him he should quit smoking when we knew he only had so much time left, it was more like, smoke all you want, just let us spend as much time with you so we can share our love with you before you age gone from us.

    Re: patrickgay – Now, now, Patrick at #9. That is just inappropriate. How irreverent especially on a posting like this about an ailing aging pop star. Your hiding behind your computer and the details you give indicate a diagnosis of Narcissistic Personality Disorder, Exhibitionism, and very likely size issues over your pitifully small boysize giblets.

  56. jen says – reply to this


    56

    Okay, listen up perez… on one hand i laud you for trying to get people to stop smoking b/c it is in fact uneccesarily unhealthy; however, you are FAT!!!!! perhaps, even morbidly obese (according to the CDC).

    p.s. obesity causes Americans far more money and ill health than smoking anyday… look it up if you don't believe me (I have a MPH), i.e. coronary heart disease, diabetes, stroke, certain forms of cancer primarily stem from obesity. so before you start throwing stones, you should move out of your FAT ASS GLASS HOUSE.

    I dont get the last remark in perez comment "Stay strong (and smoke less)!"

    What does that have to do with pancreatic cancer???? The two are not linked and perez is misinformed..

    Do we even know that he shmokes?? still its not an issue here.. this is the worst cancer ever.

    GIve better advice of gl and our prayers are with you..

    It's so sad. He has always been such a quiet, behind the scenes type. So, healthy (3 pack a day smoker???) My god a dancer. I am sad. I wish him on;ly the best and When I say my Lenten prayers he is included.

  73. Lisa says – reply to this


    73

    Perez, get off him about the smoking thing. It is HIS life, HIS body, and HIS cancer. If he wants to smoke, it is nobody's business. He has only a few months to live. He has the right to do whatever he wants. Who are you to judge him? Being overweight kills more people than smoking, and I don't see that stopping you from packing on the pounds. God, how can you stand being such a hypocrite?
    You know what else kills??

  74. Kerr says – reply to this


    74

    I think everyone should just leave him alone and let him live the rest of his life how HE wants to, cigarettes or not! Pancreatic Cancer is one of the fastest spreading cancers you can get. Patrick should be living the rest of his life free of criticism and judgement. He should be getting support and love from his fans, family and friends!

  75. Lisa says – reply to this


    75

    (finishing up from my last post)

    you know what else kills? Un-necessary cosmetic surgery has killed lots of people and it is even more pathetic than smoking cigarettes! Yet you still think that is better than a woman aging gracefully in Hollywood!

    Say no to negative thoughts yall!

    Pancreatic cancer is one of the worse cancers you can get, Depending on the extent of the tumor at the time of diagnosis, the prognosis is generally regarded as poor, with few victims still alive five years after diagnosis, and complete remission still extremely rare enjoy your last years of life man your where a good man and it will be echoed into eternity

    Leave the man alone, Perez. He is DYING, at this point it doesn't matter what he does. Pancreatic cancer is virtually non-survivable, he's not going to recover. If he wants to go out with a lungful of smoke then none of us should judge that.

    Re: natasha – your tumor may come back… but this time it will cum back in your asshole and you won't be able to poop:( the best remedy for this is to superglue your asshole shut! yes! it stops the cancer from spreading like a muslim terrorist! Cuz all muslims ARE terrorists just like an anal cancer! how shitty they both are! now go look and the mirror and just be happy u are alive. stop being so negetive! stand up and vote cunt!

    He drank like a fish and smoked like a chimney. Not sure anyone "deserves" to get cancer but he tried his damnedest to get it. I mean he was practically begging for it. He probably had that "It won't happen to me" attitude. Well guess what dummy, it does happen to people who smoke their faces off. There's even a warning on the pack.

  94. Just Stop It says – reply to this


    94

    SHAME ON YOU. I think it's appalling that you keep blaming Patrick for his illness. You can't prove that his smoking caused it, people who don't smoke get pancreatic cancer too. Not only that, you are fat. Maybe you should put down the Twinkies and get on the treadmill before you start lecturing people about their bad habits.

    Couldn't you for once leave the little bit about smoking alone. The man is worried about his family cause he "DYING" for Christ's sake. Leave the man alone; if you can't send good wishes to him, just leave it alone and don't say anything. If I were dying I would do anything I wanted, good or bad, and the hell with it.

    If he really has only months to live, heck even if he only has few years to live, he should do whatever he wants to do. If that includes smoking, then so be it.
