Patrick Swayze dies of cancer at 57

LOS ANGELES, California (CNN) -- Patrick Swayze, whose hunky good looks and sympathetic performances in such films as "Dirty Dancing" and "Ghost" made him a romantic idol to millions, died Monday. He was 57.
Patrick Swayze's doctor said in March 2008 that Swayze was suffering from pancreatic cancer.

Patrick Swayze's doctor said in March 2008 that Swayze was suffering from pancreatic cancer.

Swayze died of pancreatic cancer, his publicist, Annett Wolf, told CNN.

"Patrick Swayze passed away peacefully today with family at his side after facing the challenges of his illness for the last 20 months," Wolf said in a statement Monday.

Swayze's doctor, Dr. George Fisher, revealed in early March 2008 that Swayze was fighting the disease.

Most recently, Swayze starred in A&E network's "The Beast," which debuted in January. He agreed to take the starring role of an undercover FBI agent before his diagnosis. The network agreed to shoot an entire season of the show after Swayze responded well to cancer treatment.

He and his wife were one of the rare celebrity couples who didn't work the red carpet, didn't give constant icky interviews to lame magazines, b/c they were too busy living and loving their life.

I did see them dance together once, that was nice. They were perfect partners/

Lazy Sunday, wake up in the late afternoon
Call Parnell just to see how he's doin (Hello?)
What up, Parns? (Yo Samberg, what's crackin?)
You thinkin what I'm thinkin? (NARNIA! ) Man it's happenin
(But first my hunger pangs are stickin like duct tape)
Let's hit up Magnolia and mack on some cupcakes
(No doubt that bakery's got all the bomb frostings)
I love those cupcakes like McAdams loves Gossling [echoes]

(TWO! ) No six! (No twelve! ) BAKERS DOZEN!
I told you that I'm crazy for these cupcakes, cousin!
(Yo where's the movie playin?) Upper Westside dude
(Well let's hit up Yahoo Maps to find the dopest route! )
I prefer MapQuest (that's a good one too)
Google Maps is the best (true dat) DOUBLE TRUE!
58th to Broadway (step on it sucker)
What'cha wanna do Chris? (SNACK ATTACK MOTHER****ER! )

It's The Chronic (what?) cles of Narnia
Yeah it's The Chronic (what?) cles of Narnia
We love The Chronic (what?) cles of Narnia
Pass The Chronic (what?) cles of Narnia

[The Lonely Island]
Yo stop at the deli, the theater's overpriced
(You got the backpack?) Gonna pack it up nice
(Don't want security to get suspicious! )
Mr. Pibb and Red Vines equals crazy delicious!
(Yo reach in my pocket, pull out some dough)
Girl acted like she'd never seen a ten befo'
Throw the snacks in the bag (and I'm a ghost like Swayze)

(Roll up to the theater) ticket buyin, what we're handlin
(You can call us Aaron Burr) from the way we're droppin Hamiltons
(Now parked in our seats, movie trivia's the illest)
What "Friends" alum starred in films with Bruce Willis?
(We answered so fast it was scary)
Everyone stared in awe when we screamed MATTHEW PERRY!
Now quiet in the theater or it's gonna get tragic
(We're about to get taken to a dream world of magic! )

I'm taking it upon myself to lighten up sad threads

Swayze was a badass in every movie he made except Dirty Dancing. I HATE that movie.
