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.

GOD HEALED ME OF CANCER IN 1999 AND THE BIBLE SAYS GOD IS NO RESPECTOR OF PERSONS, WHAT HE WILL DO FOR ONE, HE WILL DO FOR ANOTHER.I HEARD PATRICK IS A SCIENTOLOGIST. THE ONLY WAY TO HEALING OR SALVATION IS THROUGH THE LORD JESUS CHRIST. BELIEVE AND CONFESS THAT HE DIED ON THE CROSS AT CALVARY FOR YOUR SINS, ASK FORGIVENESS FOR YOUR SINS AND ASK JESUS TO COME INTO YOUR HEART AND HE WILL. WORKS WILL NEVER GET YOU ANYWHERE WITH GOD...ONLY FAITH. SALVATION IS A FREE GIFT, YOU CAN'T EARN IT...JUST EXCEPT IT. I KEEP PATRICK AND HIS FAMILY IN MY PRAYERS DAY AND NIGHT AND KNOW THAT GOD IS ABLE AND WILLING TO HEAL. GOD BLESS YOU.

I know He loves you and if the cancer gets you, He will take you in His loving arms to heaven. I pray that you are a believer. Jesus is craddling you in his arms now. Maybe it is not too late for Him to cure your cancer. I have always been a fan of yours. May God Bless You and Keep You and give You Peace and Understanding. He has always loved you.

Patrick, I just wanted to say I am so touched by your movies. It saddens me that I will never be touched by your talent again after you go. I will watch Ghost and Dirty Dancing a lot to remember you. You will be missed so greatly. May God wrap his arms around you and your family during this time. May you not suffer any pain. May the heavens rejoice to have such a gifted soul. Thank you for touching mine! Sincerely Your devoted fan Cynthia, OR

I hadn't seen this news, but about 4 hours ago, my husband and I were riding in the car and "She's Like the Wind" came on. All of a sudden, I got tears in my eyes. I turned to my husband Chris and said, "I just got the weirdest premonition that Patrick Swayze is not going to make it through the year." I just about half an hour typed in Patrick Swayze's name. Instantly, I felt deep sorrow. Our son Patrick, who will be 20 in January, was named after Patrick Swayze. My husband has known from the beginning that's why I named our son after him. I'm so sad. God bless Lisa and his family during this hard time. I hope that someday I can write to her and send her pictures of my son Patrick, so she knows how much fans love him.
