There is hope , if you know how ....

Wednesday, September 16

LOS ANGELES - Patrick Swayze, best known for his starring roles in the hit films "Dirty Dancing" and "Ghost," died Monday after a long battle with pancreatic cancer. He was 57.

The Hollywood heart-throb, whose other films included the surfing thriller "Point Break," died after suffering complications from the illness, Swayze's publicist Annett Wolf confirmed.

"Patrick Swayze passed away peacefully today with family at his side after facing the challenges of his illness for the last 20 months," said Wolf in a statement.

Swayze was diagnosed with advanced stage-four pancreatic cancer in January 2008, leaving him with only a one-percent chance of surviving longer than five years, according to medical experts.

He bravely fought the disease in the public eye, continuing to work on set despite grueling cancer treatment and significant weight loss.

In January he slammed tabloid reporting of his condition in an interview with ABC television's Barbara Walters, where he bullishly declared that he was determined to beat his condition.

He told Walters he had tried to keep his illness secret but went public to protect family and friends after tabloids reported he was close to death.

"Hope is a very, very fragile thing in anyone's life and the people I love do not need to have that hope robbed from them when it's unjustified and it's untrue," Swayze said.

Yet only a few months later, Swayze's representative was forced to issue a condemnation of "reckless" reports saying the actor had died.

His costar, actress Jennifer Grey, said: "When I think of him, I think of being in his arms when we were kids, dancing, practicing the lift in the freezing lake, having a blast doing this tiny little movie we thought no one would ever see."

Grey, now 49, told People magazine Swayze was a "real cowboy with a tender heart," who was so fearless doing his own stunts that "it was not surprising to me that the war he waged on his cancer was so courageous and dignified."

Throughout his career Swayze's wife Lisa Niemi -- whom he married in 1975 -- remained a constant source of inspiration for many of his roles.

"Lisa and I have built just about every character I've done," he told People magazine in 2007. "You have to understand, we have an ease.... We've been partners for a long time."

Though ailing, Swayze, unbowed, recently acted for five months in the television series "The Beast," in which he played an FBI agent.

Dear friend and reader,

We have uploaded a case report:

Rectal Cancer Stage 3: Eight Years and Doing Fine After Surgery But Only On Herbs

AK was 70years old when she came to seek our help. Some time in March 2001 she had abdominal pains for about 2 week’s duration and she passed out blood in her stools. She went to a private hospital and did a colonoscopy. There was a 15 cm tumour at the anal verge. She was admitted into the hospital on 12 April 2001 and underwent a surgery.

Histopathology indicated moderately differentiated adenocarcinoma of the rectum, tubulovillous type, Duke Stage C. Pararectal lymph nodes: metastatic adenocarcinoma (1/6).

She recovered well and was discharged on 20 April 2001. She was subsequently referred to an oncologist for further management. She refused chemotherapy and radiotherapy. She started to take herbs and is well up to this day – 8 years!
