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)!
