Patrick Swayze’s widow is passionate about ending pancreatic cancer, 11 years after his death: ‘His fight was so heroic’

Patrick Swayze’s widow, Lisa, talks about his fight to beat pancreatic cancer and her work with the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network (PanCAN) to raise awareness of the disease.

“When Patrick was diagnosed, there were maybe four or five options. We always kept the next option on standby ‘cause the cancer gets wise and the treatment doesn't work anymore. But since then, there've been tremendous advances in molecular profiling that really helps to shortcut what particular treatments will work for you,” Swayze says.
