Despite rumors that he had succumbed to his pancreatic cancer, Patrick Swayze is reportedly still alive and kicking, according to his rep Annett Wolf.
Earlier today she told press, "This is to confirm that Patrick Swayze did not pass away this morning contrary to severely reckless reports stemming from a radio station in Jacksonville, Florida. Patrick Swayze is alive, well and is enjoying his life and he continues to respond to treatment."
Given the widespread speculation about his health, the “Dirty Dancing” stud recently made a public plea, saying, "I hope in the future, the press will think twice about printing inaccuracies and painting an unpleasant picture when I have so much to be thankful for at this time."
In a past interview Swayze maintained that he was still very hopeful for a full recovery. "I am one of the lucky ones with pancreatic cancer that is responding well to the treatment. There is a brand new, 12-week old, Rhodesian Ridgeback puppy named Kumasai in my life who is gorgeous and already showing that he will be one special dog... I have so much to be thankful for at this time."
