Patrick Swayze has been checked into the hospital for observation. On Friday evening it was revealed that the star, who is battling pancreatic cancer, has pneumonia.
People Magazine reports:
"As we arrived here this morning we have some news," said A&E president Abbe Raven. "Patrick Swayze has checked himself into the hospital. However, he asked us specifically to go forward with today's panel. We wish him the very best with his recovery."
Swayze was scheduled to attend a press event for the Television Critics Association in Los Angeles to discuss his latest project The Beast. A source close to the star said that although Swayze is ill he is not at death's door.
In an interview that aired on Wednesday with Barbara Walters, Swayze discussed the truths of living with cancer, the struggles and the hope that he still has a long life ahead of him.
Despite his difficult year battling cancer, Swayze is still looking ahead. "I keep dreaming of a future, a future with a long and healthy life," he said, "not lived in the shadow of cancer, but in the light."
The rest of the cast of The Beast were on hand to talk up the show. They talked about how inspirational Swayze has been to the group.
"[He's] been an absolute inspiration, he's an amazing guy," said costar Travis Fimmel. "He makes the little things seem not important."
