Although recent tabloid reports had Patrick Swayze giving up the fight against pancreatic cancer, claiming he’d stopped battling the spread of the disease, The Beast actor has confirmed to Entertainment Tonight that he is continuing his medical treatments.


The Dirty Dancing star announced last year that he had been stricken with stage-four pancreatic cancer. Since then, Patrick has been vocal about his struggle to fight for his life.


"I’ve never been one to run from a battle," he told Barbara Walters earlier this month. "You can bet that I’m going through hell," he adds in the interview, "and I’ve only seen the beginning of it."
