According to the National Enquirer, Patrick Swayze has begun saying goodbye to family and friends after he learns that his pancreatic cancer has spread to his liver.
Sad news comes from actor Patrick Swayze as report has been mounting that his pancreatic cancer has spread to his liver. The National Enquirer breaks the report and several other gossip sites are soon to report the same matter, claiming Patrick even has begun saying goodbye to friends and family after learning his cancer spreads.
"Patrick recently got word that the cancer had spread to his liver and that is what his doctors said would begin the countdown to the end. Patrick knew it was coming because he was suffering increased weakness," a source tells the National Enquirer. "At times, he was so weak that he could barely walk without feeling faint. Sometimes he feels out of breath and has to sit down."
Patrick reportedly has told Lisa Niemi, his wife of 33 years, and his actor brother Don Swayze that he doesn't have long time to live. "Lisa phoned Donny in Los Angeles and told him he need to come to Chicago, where Patrick has been filming TV show 'The Beast'. She was crying and scared Donny to death," the source reveals. Donny is said to get "the impression his brother was already on his deathbed because Lisa was saying Patrick wanted to say goodbye. She couldn't stop crying."
Back in early March this year, a representative for Patrick Swayze publicly confirmed the star had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. He had since been undergoing pioneering Cyberknife radiotherapy at California's Stanford University Medical Center and had been making a steady recovery from the illness.
However, in late April he was reported to be on the verge of dying. Notwithstanding the claim, he managed to finish filming his TV show "The Beast" in Chicago recently. He even was seen going to a party earlier this week to celebrate with Lisa and Donny.
No confirmation nor denial has been issued by Patrick and his people regarding report claiming his cancer has spread to his liver.
