Patrick Swayze "Responding Well" to Cancer treatment

Good news, guys. Patrick Swayze is hanging in there.

"We're thrilled and grateful for the positive response Patrick has shown towards his treatment," the Dirty Dancing star and wife Lisa Niemi told People.com, of his fight against pancreatic cancer. Patrick has been undergoing treatment to beat the disease -- and his doctor says Pat's "responding well" and having an  "excellent response."

The Swayzes have been deeply touched by the overwhelming support they've gotten from the public -- and they want you to know how much they appreciate it. "We can't help but feel that all the prayers, meditations and good thoughts sent his way by everyone has made a difference," they said. "Thank you!"

So, keep 'em coming. Somebody's listening.
