She was a talented under used actress.
R.I.P HE WAS A GREAT PERSON
Bless his heart! He fought so hard! He was a truly great actor and man, and will be missed!
Only 57. Makes you want to make better use of every day.
I know it's gone but you can't really see her nose in that pic.
Jennifer Grey is dead? God, that's sad. Well, at least now- Baby can come out of the corner.
It is very sad.
RIP, he gave it a hell of a fight.
So So sad! Can't believe more people aren't reacting. Who else is going to die. Farrah, Micheal,now Patrick.
should have quit smoking...
Hey 8:22, it was Patrick Swayze that died, not Jennifer Grey. DUH
He's gonna come back just like in Ghost
Nobody sends Swayze to the coroner!
yet another reminder of all of our mortalities. It's hell when the stars you grew up with start dying, huh?
8:22....he died, not her!
Nobody puts Baby in a corner.
Don't Cry!!!Let it turn to somethin' else.
7:14, he died of pancreatic cancer, not lung cancer, which has nothing to do with smoking. It's a long, horrible death, and he fought a better battle than most. He was a very admirable man.
To 9:05 AM:Actually, smoking does contribute to pancreatic cancer. Check your medical dictionary.RIP Patrick Swayze
9:05....Smoking increases the risks of all cancer, not just lung cancer. Your blood flows to your lungs and every other part of your body and carries everything. A trained monkey could figure that much out! Not saying that smoking totally caused it. Some of the most health-cautious people will die from cancer that never did anything that would have caused it. It's just life.
The cause of pancreatic cancer is not known. You do not know what you're talking about. Smoking increases the risk of many types of cancer, but pancreatic cancer is not directly related to a history of smoking.
Opps: I stand corrected. Per the Mayo Clinic site, smoking DOES increase the risk of pancreatic cancer, along with being obese, black, 70-80 yrs old, and a family history, among other risk factors. I was mistaken.
Swayze himself understood his cigarette usage contributed to his cancer, "A smoker for decades, Swayze acknowledged the likely connection between the habit and his condition. "I will go so far as to say probably smoking had something to do with my pancreatic cancer," he said. While he has not yet kicked the habit, he did say that he has "seriously cut down." .Statistically you are about 3 times more likely to be diagnosed with pancreatic ca if a smoker. Most recearch shows one reason for this is smoking promotes the formation of proteins that help cancer cells survive (as opposed to actually initiating the cancer). There are also studies which demonstrate a gene mutation associated with pancreatic ca and nearly all of these patients smoked and in fact most pancreatic ca patients who are smokers are in fact heavy smokers (two packs+ per day). The lowest numbers you'll find demonstating a link between pancreatic ca and smoking is about 33%. I've been a nurse for many years and have taken care of many people with pancreatic ca- 100% have been smokers.
He was also a heavy drinker which also can contribute to pancreatitis and pancreatic cancer, sad nonetheless. What woman didn't fall in love with him in Dirty Dancing?
Currently watching Ghost, makes me cry every time.
Geesh, we'll go out somehow. Blame the deceased for his own death? You people are too judgmental! My dad died of cancer. He never smoked a day in his life or live with a smoker. Is his death more sad because he didn't smoke? Shit happens. (No, I am not a smoker.)
Chup..he may not have kicked the habit, but he surely kicked the bucket.
My primary thought of Swayze is from Roadhouse or the lesser-known Next of Kin.
He drank, he smoked, well he also breathed the air...
