Patrick Swayze's Widow Took Part in Cancer Campaign


Lisa Niemi


Losing her husband to pancreatic cancer, Lisa Niemi said she would be very honored if Swayze's disease can help others.

Patrick Swayze's widow Lisa Niemi launched a new pancreatic cancer campaign on Tuesday, September 14 to raise awareness about the dangers of the disease on the first anniversary of the actor's death.

The "Ghost" star lost his battle with the killer disease a year ago and Niemi has taken it upon herself to school others about the illness as the new spokeswoman for the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. And she has marked Tuesday's poignant date by kick-starting the charity drive for "Be a Hero in the Fight Against Pancreatic Cancer: Know it. Fight it. End it."

The campaign features videos and personal messages from Niemi and she is honored to be part of the Action Network, reports People.com. She says, "It's a merciless disease. If Patrick being sick can help someone else, it's the highest possible honor I could help him have."
