Actor Patrick Swayze Dies of Pancreatic Cancer

Just yesterday, I found out that an old drinking kaki of mine passed away after a long battle with cancer. I saw him a month ago at a nearby coffeeshop looking well but he lost a hell lotta weight. I so much wanted to go up to him and shake his hand but I didn't know how to. I mean, I just didn't know what to say so I turned the opposite direction and walked home. I know, my bad...

Today, I learnt with much sadness that one of my favourite actors lost his twenty month battle with cancer. I first saw Patrick Swayze in Ghost alongside Demi Moore. Man was I blown away. I've lost count how many times I've watched it over the years.

Executive producer Laura Ziskin said after Stand Up to Cancer, "He said a beautiful thing: 'I'm just an individual living with cancer'. That's how he wants to be thought of. He's in a fight, but he's a fighter".
