Devoted Duo

Like they did everything else through 34 years of marriage, Patrick Swayze and wife Lisa Niemi battled his struggle with pancreatic cancer the only way they knew how: side by side. "I would be happy if he's around for a long time, and I am being whatever I need to be to help him do that," she told PEOPLE in April. But after a Stage IV diagnosis in February 2008, the risk-taking actor – who told Barbara Walters he had lived "159 lives" – finally died on Sept. 14, 2009 at the age of 57.

This is a terrible loss, for his wife-first, then for his extended family and friends, then for Hollywood. He was a great actor and now cancer took his life. Well, life is short and the unexpected does happen!

Hi Jadejohn,

Yes, I agree with you... It makes me so sad to think of all the "good ones" we lose to cancer... It's a crying shame.... I feel for his wife and family... I can feel what they are going through as my mom died a few years ago from cancer.. It rips your heart out, and changes you!
Thanks for stopping by and commenting... I like your website... Do you mind if I feature you on my blog sometime with a link to your page?? I'm a travel buy myself... Take care, Leesa
