Some considerably somber news, here. It seems that Patrick Swayze may only have five weeks to live. The star of Mike Nelson’s favorite movie, Road House, has had pancreatic cancer for a while, and it looks as though the treatments may be going nowhere. Now, this news comes from The National Enquirer, so take it with a grain of salt. However, pancreatic cancer is a tough cancer to beat, so it doesn’t sound too unlikely. If true, then this is sad news for MSTies and fans of such classics as Road House and Point Break. God be with you, Mr. Swayze.
UPDATE: As one might’ve expected coming from The National Enquirer, it seems the “five weeks” allegations are untrue. The only reason I posted about The Enquirer’s story is because legitimate news sources were also doing so. Should’ve known better. Either way, Patrick’s clearly going through a rough time, something which I wasn’t previously aware of. I still wish him the best.
