Tuesday 15th September 2009
It is with great sadness that we heard earlier today of the passing of Patrick (on 14th September 2009). Our thoughts and love go out to his wife Lisa and all the family.
Patrick touched millions of people all over the world with his courage and strength he showed during his recent battle with pancreatic cancer. All of us here at the Official Fan Club were honoured to be able to help Patrick and Lisa over many years to pass along messages and news to fans all over the world through this website.
Patrick was truly a gentleman and a gentle man. He cared deeply about so many things and on so many different levels. He loved his craft - acting - and was so proud too of his wife Lisa whom he respected as a director and fellow artist.
Patrick's body of work was wide and varied as all his fans will know. Through his portrayal of all these characters, he has made us laugh or cry. From the "swivelling hipped" Johnny Castle of Dirty Dancing to the tear-jerking Sam Wheat of Ghost to the soul searching Max Lowe of City of Joy and of course to the ultimate Southern Gentleman, Orry Main in North and South.
Patrick and Lisa were soulmates and our hearts go out to Lisa at this difficult time.
Patrick will be greatly missed.

We have received the official statement from Patrick's publicist, which follows.
Statement from Patrick Swayze's Representatives:
"WEDNESDAY, MARCH 5TH: (Los Angeles): "Actor Patrick Swayze has been diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer and is currently undergoing treatment. Patrick's physician Dr. George Fisher states, "Patrick has a very limited amount of disease and he appears to be responding well to treatment thus far. All of the reports stating the timeframe of his prognosis and his physical side effects are absolutely untrue. We are considerably more optimistic." Patrick is continuing his normal schedule during this time, which includes working on upcoming projects. The outpouring of support and concern he has already received from the public is deeply appreciated by Patrick and his family."
We at the Fan Club send all our best wishes and positive thoughts to Patrick and Lisa at this difficult time. Get well soon Patrick!
