    Pictured: Cancer-stricken Patrick Swayze poses with wife Lisa to combat 'death' rumours

    They say a picture is worth a thousand words. But for Patrick Swayze just two will do - I'm alive.

    And it's clear what cancer-stricken Swayze, 56, is trying to convey as he sits smiling alongside wife Lisa Niemi and their dogs, poodle Lucas and Rhodesian ridgeback puppy Kumasai, at their ranch in New Mexico.
    The picture, taken last week, was released after a wave of false rumours that Swayze had died. The story originated on U.S. radio station Kiss FM and then circulated on social micro-blogging site Twitter.

    Swayze, whose battle with pancreatic cancer was announced last year, is hoping the picture will combat such rumours.
    Frail: Swayze seen in Los Angeles last month

    'This is to confirm that Patrick Swayze did not pass away this morning contrary to severely reckless reports stemming from a radio station in Jacksonville, Florida,' said the actor's spokesman.
    'Patrick Swayze is alive, well and is enjoying his life and he continues to respond to treatment.'
    In January, the Dirty Dancing star gave his first TV interview since being diagnosed with the disease. He told U.S. TV host Barbara Walters that he was 'scared and angry'.

    'You can bet that I'm going through Hell,' he said.

    'And I've only seen the beginning of it. There's a lot of fear here. There's a lot of stuff going on. Yeah, I'm scared. Yeah, I'm angry. Yeah, I'm asking, "Why me?"'
    Last year, after losing a dramatic amount of weight, Swayze was diagnosed with a malignant tumour in his pancreas.

    As it had spread to his liver, he was told surgery was not an option.

    Medical experts say most patients have less than six months to live after being diagnosed with such cancer.
    But rather than remain at home in California, Swayze accepted a part as an under-cover FBI agent in a Chicago TV series called The Beast.

    He refused to take painkillers for fear it would affect his performance.

    At weekends he would fly to Los Angeles for chemotherapy and be back on the set on Monday mornings.

    Swayze said he was determined to fight his illness, saying: 'I just love to work hard.'

    I don't know why this is bothering me so much but I really hate this.

    I hope they are able to spend as much time together as possible.

    Poor man shouldn't have to prove he's alive, when he actually is, right now. So demented.

    It bothers me that he feels that he needs to disprove these rumours, instead of telling that radio station to go f*** itself.

    I saw all episodes of The Beast, and it was great.

    Well, that's because he's not. The man is dying of cancer. He doesn't have much time left.

    ^I know he's dying. I mean they released that picture to prove something, but he looks like he could go any day now.

    I think all they meant to really prove was that he's still alive and living life as fully as he can.

    They look happy in that picture (relatively speaking), and I hope they can enjoy whatever amount of time they have left together.

    i think he looks good for someone who is dying.

    AND it really pisses me off that this poor man and his family have to resort to sending out a picture to show he's alive.
    FUCK that stupid radio station that started this shit in the first place.

    My Mom didn't have chemo. The doctors knew there was nothing they could do for her, so why put her through that? I have the feeling Patrick isn't going through chemo, either.
