(Newser) – Patrick Swayze quickly scotched tabloid rumors today that he's stopped receiving treatments for his pancreatic cancer, People reports. "The reports are not true," said a spokeswoman. "Patrick is continuing his treatment." Swayze, 56, was hospitalized earlier this month for pneumonia, and several tabloids reported that he'd subsequently given up on chemo. "Nothing has changed," said the spokeswoman.
