I'm not dying says Patrick Swayze

Despite reports over the last week that actor Patrick Swayze is on his deathbed and saying his last goodbyes, it would appear that the tabloid gossip is untrue, and that's direct from the horses mouth

Swayze has come out and slammed reports that say he doesn't have long to live, saying that he is actually winning his fight with Pancreatic Cancer:

"They're reporting that I'm on my last legs and saying goodbye to my tearful family! ... It's upsetting that the shoddy and reckless reporting from these publications cast a negative shadow on the positive and good fight I'm fighting."

Swayze says the coverage is tantamount to "emotional cruelty", and angers him "when hope is so precious."
