Anyway, more recent reports indicate a degree of exaggeration - NBC quotes his doctor as saying that he has cancer but he is responding well to treatment, while Perez Hilton says that he is working on rehearsals for a future movie as usual.
This is very sad to hear. A woman in my office had a close family member who suffered from the same type and said she wouldn't be surprised if it got worse quickly. But obviously I hope this isn't true, good healthy vibes to Patrick etc.
Said on Radio One this morning that his spokeperson denied he had 5 weeks to live. But on the other hand they would never in million years confirm it. I thought Jeremy Beadle would see another day based on Radio one's coverage of it and look how that one turned out!
