Famous Hollywood actor Patrick Swayze 57, passed away Monday evening due to complications brought about by Pancreatic Cancer. Patrick Swayze was best known for his roles in the hit films “Dirty Dancing”, “Ghost”, and “To Wong Foo Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar.” According to a statement released by his publicist, “Patrick Swayze passed away peacefully today with family at his side after facing the challenges of his illness for the last 20 months.”
Swayze has been diagnosed with advanced stage-four pancreatic cancer in January 2008, which left him with only a one-percent chance of surviving longer than five years. He kept working despite his terminal illness, putting together a memoir with his wife and shooting “The Beast,” an A&E drama series for which he had already made the pilot. His significant weight loss was seen by the public but his determination to live longer was the only reason that kept him stronger as days passed. Swayze even opted not to use painkilling drugs while making “The Beast” to make each and every scene look normal as possible. The TV series ran for 13 episodes with 1.3 million viewers when it aired in 2009.
