“Pain Don’t Hurt” – James Dalton aka Patrick Swayze

Road House

If you’re an avid First Friday Podcast listener (which I hope you are) you know that we hold Patrick Swayze and his acting career in high regards – especially his efforts in Road House and Red Dawn. 

It was no less than a shock to us this week to learn that Patrick has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.   Despite reports from the well regarded and always accurate National Enquirer (Let’s be honest – have they ever reported on a story that didn’t prove to be true?) that Swayze had only 5 weeks to live his doctor is optimistic about his prognosis, saying he has a “very limited amount of disease and appears to be responding well to treatment.”  Dr. George Fisher, Swayze’s doctor went on to say that “All of the reports stating the timeframe of his prognosis and his physical side effects are absolutely untrue.  We are considerably more optimistic.”  

Patrick, know that we at First Friday are keeping you in our thoughts and prayers and look forward to you making a full recovery and of course filming sequels to Road House and Red Dawn.
