I read an article in the Daily Mail newspaper from London about Patrick Swayze and his cancer battle. He looks much better than he did three months ago.
The article said that tubes hanging out the front of his shirt were thought to be catheters for his chemotherapy. That's probably true. He's on a twenty-four hour pump that puts a tablespoon of chemo into him every hour.
I did the same once a week with a drug called 5FU. It made me sicker than a dog. Now I know what the FU stands for...
Anyway, the good thing about the article is that it talks about the CyberKnife as an advanced form of radiotherapy. That helps to get the word out. It's an option for those who don't want traditional radiation. It is not widely available, although the number of centers offering the treatment around the world has grown to over 150.
The article also mentioned that Patrick was seen taking a couple of cigarette breaks.
Cigarette breaks? Are you kidding me?
Here's a news flash for you, Pat:
Cigarettes cause cancer.
