After a long battle with pancreatic cancer, Patrick Swayze has died. He was 57 years old.
Patrick starred in 2 of the biggest romantic movies of all time, "Dirty Dancing" and "Ghost". He leaves behind a wife Lisa Neimi, whom he was married to for 34 years. Everyone who Patrick met through the years had nothing but nice things to say about him. Always on time, always professional, just a true gentleman.
We all knew his struggle with pancreatic cancer and how he was fighting it, and for a while beating it. "I'm a miracle", he proclaimed last year when he was filming a TV show for the A& E network. I posted a photo of Patrick Swayze about 2 weeks ago of him being escorted out of the hospital in a wheelchair he was so weak. We knew that he was going to die, it was just a matter of time, but it does not make it any less sad.
I will remember him as the last time I saw him, singing "Play That Funky Music" at The Roosevelt Hotel in 2007.
My condolences to the family and friends of Patrick Swayze. He will be missed.-Dr.FB
