Swayze Still Undergoing Cancer Treatment

PATRICK SWAYZE's publicists are slamming U.S. tabloid reports the actor has abandoned treatment for pancreatic cancer, insisting there is "no truth" to the allegations. The National Enquirer claimed the Dirty Dancing star, who was diagnosed with the fatal disease last year (08), had quit all chemotherapy and was preparing for his final days after allegedly being told his condition was "inoperable".
But Swayze's representative Annett Wolf has blasted the rumours, saying: "The reports are not true. Patrick is continuing his treatment."
The star was recently released from hospital after undergoing treatment for pneumonia, but he insisted he was fighting the illness as best he could.
He told reporters, "I am still alive and plan on continuing to stay that way."

I also was diagnozed with Pancreatic Cancer on the 23rd Dec 2008.I had surgery on the 2nd January they removed my tumor.I have been informed that I still have the disease which they found had spread into two of my lympnodes.I have been told I need to do chemotherapy and radiation.I have agonized over this decision and decided that this is not the way for me. Of course this is a personal decision.

Every day were here is winning the battle in this world of what ever is happening in our life or what maybe affecting us. We are winners to have the chance to be here each day,an sharing it with our loved ones. Positive Attitude is everything...Prayers are so needed and just believing. It's when one decides to give up or give in they allow their life to change. We have control til its our time. Nobody knows when. We can be told so much but having belief is a giving gift and we all have this if we want to believe. I know the fear too well.My hopes is to someday open a "Hope Health Outreach Research Center" where I can help others advocate for themselves or family members by grouping up with so many support groups,hospitals,by educating the public on what is out there. So many give up and its those whom keep fighting live past the time given many times. My mom was in stage 4 breast cancer for 5 years and after numerous trials and treatments nothing touched her she had passed last spring.I believe each person has too be treated individually when it comes to cancer. I still believe she would be here if she had not done the kinds of treatments for her. My mom was a very healthy lady overall and not overweight her work consist of good exercise too. After so many treatments I believe it wears on some who's body can't rebuild as fast as its robbed of all the good cells. I believe the best medicine is doing what you love and do what you believe that will help you as a person. I also feel that knowlege on what one has an be educated on it makes one understand the journey giving ideas on hmmmm what do I want to do or try that works for me. So be yourself and keep hope no matter what one tells you for any diagnose. I'll keep you in my prayers and know we are with you and god is only a thought away from us. Sometimes things don't seem the best but one breathe at a time and one day at a time...
