The interview will air tonight in the ABC special Patrick Swayze: The Truth, and Swayze begins by noting how long he's lasted so far:
Still, he admits, "I'd say five years is pretty wishful thinking. Two years seems likely if you're going to believe statistics.
"I want to last until they find a cure, which means I'd better get a fire under it," says the star, who denies he is on his "death bed." [...]
As for his smoking habit, the actor has "cut back" but says quitting for him is not a "priority."
Hollyscoop brings breaking news that Suzanne Somers approves of Swayze's conduct. "Pancreatic [cancer] is terrible," she said, but noted that Swayze is "one of the lucky ones. Whatever he’s doing, it's right!" Duly noted, Suzanne Somers.
