After giving Barbara Walters a heartfelt and emotional interview about his cancer, Patrick Swayze has checked himself into the hospital.
He reportedly is suffering from pneumonia. Patrick was due to appear on the TV Critics Association’s press tour for promotion on his new show, The Beast.
A&E President and General Manager Robert DeBitetto said, “Patrick has asked that I tell you that this morning he checked himself into the hospital for observation. Chemotherapy can take its toll on the immune system, and illnesses are a part of that. Patrick wishes me to tell you that he’s very sorry he cannot attend, but plans to get back to promoting ‘The Beast’ soon. He thanks everybody for the outpouring of support. We hope to see him back on his feet soon.”
Get well soon Patrick!
