Enquirer Reports: ‘Swayze Gives Up Medical Treatment For Cancer’

January 29, 2009

US (ChattahBox) – According to a report by the National Enquirer, Patrick Swayze has given up all medical treatment for his pancreatic cancer, after being told by doctors that there is nothing more then they can do.

While we should be inclined to consider if the source (the National Enquirer isn’t exactly the most esteemed news report in the country), it should also be kept in mind that they were the first to break the story of Swayze’s cancer last year, and so some credence should be given.

Especially when you consider the fact that most given this diagnosis are estimated a six month lifespan at most.

An anonymous friend of the family sat down with the Enquirer this week, with a few details about this tragic news.

“There’s nothing more doctors can do for him. We are down to the wire and the goal now is to keep Patrick comfortable. His condition is inoperable and they have stopped the chemo. He’s still losing weight and he’s very weak.”

Those who have seen recent images of the Ghost star will not be surprised by this news, as he has continued to appear more and more frail in his battle against cancer. However, he has not given up his determination.

“There’s more I want to do. Lots more. I want to last until they find a cure,” he told Barbara Walters in a recent interview.

His courage is admirable, and though reports suggest he was the one to give up on his treatment, several doctors have said that they don’t blame him for his decision.

“When you are as determined an individual as Swayze, you want to have some control over how you spend your last days,” Dr Judy Kuriansky, explained.

“I am sure he will summon every last vestige of strength to fulfill his desire.”

    If there are no other options left, I can’t blame him for this decision. He will actually be able to do things longer than if he still held out attempting chemotherapy or anything else – which would make him more sick.

    I feel so sad but whatever he decide anybody should accept his wishes.
    I liked him as a actor and a person and i will pray for him to take the awful pain away and he can rest more peacefully. He will always be in our heart and mind.
