We are devastated to report actor Patrick Swayze, who is fighting pancreatic cancer for almost a year now, was hospitalized today for pneumonia and is currently under observation. This sad news was announced at a press conference for the Television Critics Association in Los Angeles.
“As we arrived here this morning we have some news,” said A&E president Abbe Raven. “Patrick Swayze has checked himself into the hospital. However, he asked us specifically to go forward with today’s panel. We wish him the very best with his recovery.”
In a recent interview with Barbara Walters, Patrick admitted his condition is very serious and knows he would be lucky to live two more years. Patrick is a fighter! We believe he can make it and we send our get well wishes and prayers out to him and his family.
