Patrick Swayze Hospitalized With Pneumonia

Patrick Swayze was hospitalized with pneumonia Friday, days after saying publicly he was angry and going through hell in his fight to beat pancreatic cancer.

The news was released at an A&E event for television critics showcasing Swayze’s new television series The Beast.

Bob DeBitetto, a top A&E executive, said at the session that Swayze had decided to check himself into the hospital “for observation” after coming down with pneumonia. “Patrick did want me to tell you that he is very sorry he couldn’t be at the panel this morning, but he plans to get back to promoting ‘The Beast’ as soon as he is back on his feet.”

Contrary to some rumors doing the rounds, Swayze hasn’t died, although his odds of survival aren’t great. Depending on how far the cancer has spread, his chances of beating it are between 5% and 27%.
