Patrick Swayze has been catching some heat for being photographed smoking just days after news broke of him having terminal cancer. But there might be help for him on the horizon.
A team of British surgeons from the Royal Free Hospital in London want to perform a possibly life-saving surgery on Swayze. They think he's a great candidate for a radical new medical technique that involves reworking a patient's veins. Performed for the first time in December, the surgery is expected to save hundreds of lives per year.
I’m all for saving lives however Swayze was photographed smoking just days after news broke that he suffered from terminal cancer. I hope that if he goes through with the surgery, he will cease all activity that may have contributed to his cancer in the first place.
