Actor Patrick Swayze, who was diagnosed earlier this year with pancreatic cancer, says he is responding positively to his cancer treatment. The actor not only went to a Lakers game over the weekend with his wife Lisa, but also traveled and socialized.
Swayze, 55, known for his movies such as "Dirty Dancing" and "Ghost," was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in March and is undergoing treatment at Stanford University Medical Center.
According to People.com, Swayze released a statement updating everyone on his condition, because he wanted his fans to share in his good news.
The statement said, "Thought I'd give you guys a little update. Lisa and I have been back and forth from New Mexico enjoying the arrival of spring and new baby calves. This past weekend, we spent a fun time with friends in Reno for Lisa's birthday, where I took her jewelry shopping at Kenny G & Company and (we) were able to find her something really special and much deserved! In the meantime, I am continuing treatment at Stanford and the great news is I continue to respond well."
