Patrick Swayze road-housin’ pancreatic cancer

May 28th, 2008 // 40 Comments

At the beginning of March, reports were circulating that Patrick Swayze only had five weeks to live. Well, over two months later, and using the same pic, I’m happy to post that Patrick is putting cancer’s ass in the corner and responding well to treatment. He issued the following statement to People:

“Thought I’d give you guys a little update. Lisa and I have been back and forth from New Mexico enjoying the arrival of spring and new baby calves. This past weekend, we spent a fun time with friends in Reno for Lisa’s birthday, where I took her jewelry shopping at Kenny G & Company and (we) were able to find her something really special and much deserved! In the meantime, I am continuing treatment at Stanford and the great news is I continue to respond well.”

Every once in a while, it’s nice to take a break from flying nipples and butt pads to write about something positive. I mean, not that boobs aren’t positive; let’s not get carried away. But sometimes you gotta recognize when cancer gets freaking pwned by Point Break himself. Also, I may or may not be recognizing by standing on my desk singing “The Time of My Life.”

The Superficial wishes Patrick the best of luck in his ongoing treatment and, in the spirit of celebration, has included the hilariously classic SNL sketch of Chris Farley and The Swayze trying out for Chippendale’s after the jump.

    Sings like a stabbed pig, but certainly good to know he’s not dying right away.

    What an excellent use of your brain cells #1. And may I add to the Fish’s story: yay! Best wishes to Patrick. Here’s hoping the next time we see him won’t be as a Ghost.

    What was the name of that movie he did where he was a truck driver and he had to smuggle something acorss the states and wore leather driver gloves the whole time. Man, talk about jumping the shark

  9. I am hoping for the best. That is great news to hear he is responding well. Thanks for covering this post.

    “We’re just here to have a good time.”
    ” Pancreatic cancer is too stupid to have a good time!”

    Watch out for the knife in the boot tip!

    Sincere best wishes to him. I’m so glad he’s doing well. I’m not a huge fan but I’m always glad to hear someone beating cancer.

  17. BunnyButt

    Kick ASS, baby!

  18. I named an ex girlfriend of mine cancer, just so I could say beat cancer.

    Point Break: GREAT movie! Best thing either Swayze or Reeves have ever done.

    I know of 2 people who recently died of pancreatic cancer. That shit’s scary. I never thought much about cancer til now. I guess patrick swayze’s lucky – plus I’m sure he has the best care money can buy.. cause yeah pancreatic cancer usually comes out of nowhere and you are dead within monthys. Scary.

  21. ToTellTheTruth

    Glad to hear it!!!!

  22. grace

    glad to know he’s responding well. best wishes to him.

    #5 let me guess, you’re a fat pig?

  24. Man, fuck pancreatic cancer! Patricks pwns that shit! Shit, add Swayze to the picture? Pancreatic cancer got fucked up the ass!

    Seriously, I hope he beats it and makes a new, rude ass comedy flick.

  25. No body puts baby in the corner…

    No body….

    Cancer however, Patrick will put your ass in the corner.

  26. well, and back when they first announced it they were already saying that the “weeks to live” thing was crap. whether that is because of the Power of the Swayze or because the media is insane is up to the reader to decide….

    The problem with pancreatic cancer is that by the time symptoms start showing up it has generally metastasized through the blood stream to other organs. It has one of the lowest survival rates of any cancer. However it does have survival rates and The Swayz is one of the baddest of men. So my hopes that he cock punches the hell outta cancer.

    Hahaha…#27…that’s hilarious. I too am glad he is putting cancer’s ass in the corner.

    Deacon Jones you’ve got a lovely daughter……

  30. This asshole Qiang Du/ is starting to piss me off. SuperFish, if you need help slapping this guy round, you know where to find me. They call me Fighter. Spam Fighter.

    Glad to know someone is beating cancer- my 30-year-old friend died of lung cancer last week.

  32. Barkingrex

    Point Break was great, but you have to mix in some Road House and maybe even a Red Dawn reference to really make me porud.

  33. misery bunny

    Unfortch, he’d better enjoy it while it lasts. Nobody beats the pancreatic.
