In an exclusive interview with Barbara Walters (http://abcnews.go.com/Health/story?id=6580801&page=1), actor Patrick Swayze spoke candidly about his prognosis after living for a year with stage 4 pancreatic cancer. (http://abcnews.go.com/video/playerIndex?id=6584610)

Swayze said that in the year since his diagnosis, he had defied the statistics and "trash magazines" that predicted he should have "already been dead a long time," but he acknowledged that time may be running out.



"I'd say five years is pretty wishful thinking," he told Walters. "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."

Swayze has been my boy since 'Road House'. I really hope he turns out alright and something positive comes from his diagnosis

Pancreatic cancer is the worst of the worst. It is extremely painful and is a one way sentence to death. My prayers are with him.
