    I hope he gets better. This is not a good sign. He looked pretty good on Barbara Walters show the other night.

    He’s had this cancer for quite some time. Honestly I’m surprised he’s still alive, but I am happy that he is, I’ve always loved him as an actor. Hopefully he will get through this newest battle quickly.

    Mr. Swayze is one determined, brave, gutsy fellow, but I fear for him. His gaunt weakened physical state was clearly visible to me in this interview, and although he has beaten the odds, and despite his upbeat, truly inspiring attitude, it is very sadly apparent his gruelling regime has taken its toll on this wonderful person.

    I am so sorry for Patrick Swayze and I would not wish this horrible disease on anyone. I so wish him to be a survivor and a beacon of hope for all other cancer victims. Loving wishes go out to him from me!!

  5. Sylvia • January 9, 2009 @ 11:38 PM

    I would not wish cancer on anyone. I’ve always liked him as an actor and hope he overcomes this battle and goes on to live a long healthy life.

    I’ve lost too many good friends to this terrible disease — thank-you Patrick for the many fine moments you’ve given me with your acting — you are in my prayers every day — I salute your courage in fighting this battle

  7. Jak • January 10, 2009 @ 12:19 PM

    he’s gonna die

  8. tributegirl • January 10, 2009 @ 7:39 PM

    Jak, you’re a real jerk.

  9. vicki • January 11, 2009 @ 1:02 AM

    He’s a class act all the way. His courage is truly inspiring. Hope he’s feeling the love from all his fans as he fights this latest battle…

  10. mandee • January 11, 2009 @ 2:12 AM

    this is heartbreaking news as well. i really hope that he can survive this horrible disease, although if he has had it for a while, it is probably unlikely. wishing him the best of luck.

  11. Jak • January 12, 2009 @ 7:17 PM

    it’s unbeatable!! thats why he’s gonna die.
    it’s the truth. half my family died of this cancer

  12. tributegirl • January 13, 2009 @ 2:23 PM

    Still a real sucky way to say it.

  13. .. • January 14, 2009 @ 4:49 AM

    The wrong half of your family died then!!

  14. vicki • January 14, 2009 @ 11:00 PM

    Okay, Tribute girl, you need to give your head a serious shake. That was a truly disgusting thing to say to someone who has suffered such terrible family losses. Re-read Jak’s first comment in light of his second. At the very worst, he was insensitive to the potential harshness of his words. At the very LEAST, you were monstrously cruel.

  15. mandee • January 15, 2009 @ 2:24 AM

    well its not like she KNOWS him personally and realized what his family has been through. she has every right to say that he said it in a sucky way. theres nothing wrong with what she said, i would have been much meaner about it because he shouldnt have been so careless to begin with. wow, sure looks like we got another jo on our hands here.

  16. Nancy • January 15, 2009 @ 5:30 PM

    So, calling someone a “jerk” is ‘disgusting’ and ‘monstrously cruel’??? I’m not saying that either comment was right but where the heck were you vicki when people call others on here “idiot” and “loser” for absolutely NO REASON at all??

  17. Jo-Anne. • January 15, 2009 @ 6:24 PM

    yes, Nancy you and your 2 buddies have been caling many others on this site those exact names forever now…wierd how you find fault with what you yourselves practice repeatedly.

    also wierd, mandee, is your constant deragatory reference to me yet you claim vehemently not to be interested in my comments – yeah, right.

    vicki, your opinion matters as much (actually more) than these 3. Carry on.

    you’ll soon catch on, when someone disagrees with them, they attack in this wierd threesome. I appreciate the way you have worded your response and it makes sense to me. And Jak, sorry to hear of your losses, that’s harsh.

  18. Jo-Anne. • January 15, 2009 @ 6:26 PM

    yes, Nancy you and your 2 friends have been calling many, many others on this site those exact two names whenever they disagree with your opinions…wierd how you find fault with what you yourselves practice.

    also wierd, mandee, is your deragatory reference to me yet you claim vehemently not to be interested in my comments – yeah, right.

    vicki, your opinion matters as much (actually more) than these 3. Carry on.

  19. vicki • January 15, 2009 @ 8:01 PM

    I’d say that responding to someone sharing how half his family has died of cancer with the comment that “the wrong half of your family died then!!” is just about the most loathsome comeback I have EVER had the misfortune to read.
    …yes, I’ll stand by “monstrously cruel”.
    And yes, I happen to be proud if that makes me “another Jo”, since you must also find her to be honest, articulate, and steadfastly decent.

  20. Nancy • January 15, 2009 @ 8:27 PM

    First of all, Jo-Anne is NONE of what you mentioned!! Secondly, Tributegirl is not the one who said “the wrong half of your family died then!!” please re-read the name (if that’s what we’re supposed to call it) on that comment. That’s what I was wondering…why you would say that just over her calling Jak a “jerk”…??? Lastly, Jo-Anne…you know damn well that I haven’t called anyone on here an “idiot” or a “loser”!! Jeeze, we argue about this constantly…or have you forgotten in your old age already…that ‘I’ am the one who is always saying that everyone is entitled to his/her own opinion on here without being called names and degraded because of it. Something else I find quite interesting Jo, is how when you’re not here for a few days, all the rude comments seem to cease. Ever since I mentioned the IP addresses of the rude comments probably leading to the same computer, funny thing happened….the comments stopped!! Hmmm…wonder if they got traced..???

  21. Nancy • January 15, 2009 @ 8:35 PM

    By the way, I’d like Jo-Anne to give me the name of just 1 person I have “called those exact 2 names”….I’ll be waiting for a very, very, VERY long time!!! 😛 Nice try though Jo, but EVERYONE on here knows you are nothing but a BULLSH!TTER!!!!!!

  22. vicki • January 15, 2009 @ 9:07 PM

    Sorry, Tribute Girl. You aren’t responsible for the comment that upset me so much. I didn’t understand that identifier starting with an ellipsis was referring to another person — I thought it was a continuation of your previous comment.

  23. Jo-Anne. • January 15, 2009 @ 9:58 PM

    okay, Nancy, sorry it’s been a few minutes, I had to swig my bottle of Geritol first ha ha

    however, I must apologize….in the 2 minutes I spent looking at some of your posts you are indeed correct. There was no simple “idiot” retort from yourself, you in fact referred to someone as “f*cking idiot.” I stand corrected.

    oh, in same 2 minutes I was able to come across Nancy-isms, “sicko”, “spineless piece of sh*t”, and then just Plain Jane version, “piece of sh*t”, “f*cking little goof”… if I perhaps had an hour I could unearth yet more gems. But alas, no “idiot.” yet….

  24. Nancy • January 15, 2009 @ 10:20 PM

    OH, I KNEW THAT STEVEN WAS THE NAME YOU WOULD COME UP WITH!!! I think you also should have told everyone who reads this that Tribute also BANNED this ‘Steven’ from posting because (and the reason I made those comments to him), he threatened to kill my children and myself in his comment on the Sept. 19/08 Miley Cyrus Dating a 20 Year Old Underwear Model!!!!!! Notice you didn’t mention that huh, Hagatha???

  25. Nancy • January 15, 2009 @ 10:47 PM

    You can’t! Because I don’t call people names for having a ‘difference of opinion’! But, let it be known that when they start with me, I don’t go wimpering in the corner, and I don’t kiss @$$!!!!

  26. mandee • January 16, 2009 @ 2:09 AM

    ohh i understand now, sorry to you as well vicki, i thought you were only saying things to tributegirl because she called him a jerk, i didnt realize you had misread what happened. thats why i said youre just like jo, she always does that to people. and i dont care what you say jo 🙂 nice try though. and once again, the only person ive called an idiot or anything like that, is you, because you clearly prove time and time again that im right about it.

  27. tributegirl • January 16, 2009 @ 8:34 PM

    Hey vicki, no problem, when I was first reading your comment, I was wondering what I said that was so horrible, but read on and saw the misunderstanding. Saying the wrong half died is definitely a sick thing to say, no arguement there, but I still think the way he said “he’s gonna die” was pretty cold, especially if he did really lose family members to this horrible disease.

    And I was involved in the conversation in that Miley Cyrus article, and I can tell you, Steven was one sick puppy, and Jo-Anne agreed with everything he said simply because he was arguing with me and Nancy, so in my opinion that made her pretty sick too, and she’s never apologized for siding with someone so evil. Anyone can go back and read it, but the worst comments from him, including the death threat, have been deleted.

  28. Nancy • January 19, 2009 @ 7:44 PM

    Actually, Tribute removed it and then banned Steven…and then you Jo Jo, threw a temper tantrum…and said you were never going to say anything to Tributegirl, mandee or myself again. As usual though…ALL TALK!! Anyways, there is still one comment of Steven’s on that article saying “Nancy should be shot”. Other than that, I could care less what you or anyone else believes…Steven deserved every word of it and then some!

  29. jamie • February 1, 2009 @ 5:01 PM

    I hope he doesn’t die, he’s a great actor and a wonderful person. I would not wish cancer on anyone, so i hope he gets recovers soon.
