Diagnosed with Stage IV pancreatic cancer in January 2008, Swayze told Barbara Walters a year later that he was "kicking it". However, he died
from the disease on September 14, 2009
and underwent chemotherapy and treatment with an experimental drug Vatalanib to cut off the blood supply to the tumor at the Stanford
Um, sounds like the experiment failed to me!
I went in to get my back looked at.
250 dollars for the prescription, which I never did get btw.
So I go into to a good chiropractor a couple of times, and I feel tons better!
Why would you go under the knife before trying something a little less invasive? Just seems crazy to me!
When Barbara Walters asked him if he was using any holistic or alternative methods of treatment besides the chemotherapy, Swayze admitted to using
some Chinese herbs, but not much. He then voiced his opposition to alternative therapy, as noted by ABC News journalist Joseph Brownstein
Too bad the side affects are sometimes as bad as the cure!
And we never do get "cured" of course.
Its never about healing of the entire person,
its all about prescriptions and surgery.
I think "big pharma" in this case refers to the huge industry that it has become!
Its a business to make money and patch people up.
Not to heal the entire individual.
If the drugs were taken in the period struggling with cancer, you believe they would still be here today, if they had chosen an alternative
Sadly we'll never know.
I wonder how much Vatalanib costs, just out of curiosity.....
