The National Enquirer has been reporting exclusively that the 55-year-old has been given only five weeks left to live.  The tabloid claims the cancer, which was discovered in late January, has already spread to other organs.

While the details of Swayze’s current condition was left vague, a statement released today seems to contradict the dire news:

“Patrick has a very limited amount of disease and he appears to be responding well to treatment thus far. All of the reports stating the timeframe of his prognosis and his physical side effects are absolutely untrue. We are considerably more optimistic.
