The Dirty Dancing star has been fighting an ongoing battle with pancreatic cancer. He suffered from intestinal bleeding and was admitted to hospital in Beverly Hills earlier this month. During the treatment, he was accompanied by his wife Lisa and brother Danny.

According to the Daily Mail from London, Swayze has been confined to a wheelchair. Once again he hid his head under a cowboy hat, while tubes connected to drips and catheter bags could be seen coming out of his clothing.

“The star has looked healthier in photographs taken within the past month but is still said to be in a lot of pain. Swayze has already defied experts by surviving more than a year with the disease. Doctors say most patients live less than six months with that specific type of cancer," reports Daily Mail.

However, Patrick Swayze was first diagnosed with cancer in March 2008. He is currently working on his biography, The Time Of My Life, at his home in LA and has been spotting smoking despite the risks to his worsening health. The actor seems to be not afraid of death.
