Patrick Swayze Remaining Positive But Realistic About Cancer

Dirty Dancing star, Patrick Swayze, was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer last year. Though he's outlived his early bleak prognosis, Swayze refuses to give up. Patrick realizes his days are running out but hopes he has at least two years left and is hoping that doctors will find a cure in that time frame. Although admittedly scared, he's living "moment to moment," and Swayze continues the battle saying, "So far, I've got potential for a lot of quality of life."

Patrick hasn't spoken much about his condition since being diagnosed; this changes tonight. This evening on 20/20, he answers questions and talks candidly about his experience in an interview with Barbara Walters, in a special called Patrick Swayze: The Truth.
