My Mom died of pancreatic cancer almost 2 years ago. I have been a fan of Patrick Swayze’s all my life. This disease is the 4th leading cause of cancer death and yet gets the least amount of money for research. I hope Patrick’s greatest legacy is the dignity with which he carried himself during the last 20 months of his life. I also hope that because of his visibility and popularity, more money is given to research so we don’t lose another person like Patrick, or my Mom, to this horrible disease.
