Jennifer Grey honors the death of Dirty Dancing co-star Patrick Swayze, who died one year ago today to pancreatic cancer.
Patrick Swayze was not only an icon, he was a household name that everyone had heard of. It was a tragedy when he lost his battle one year ago today to pancreatic cancer. In honor of the late “Dirty Dancing” star, Jennifer Grey, who is quoted saying Swayze was “her original and unforgettable dancing partner” has asked Patrick Swayze’s widow, Lisa Niemi to come cheer her on, when she competes on Dancing With The Stars Season 11.
You see, Jennifer Grey, who co-starred with Patrick Swayze in the unforgettable film, “Dirty Dancing,” will be a contestant on the upcoming season of Dancing With The Stars. Grey feels that it would be a great honor for Niemi to come cheer her on in person as she competes on Dancing With The Stars Season 11. Jennifer Grey knows that her “Dirty Dancing” co-star, Patrick Swayze, will be there, on the dance floor, in spirit, every single night.
Jennifer Grey goes on to tell Access Hollywood that Patrick Swayze was an inspiration to her both on and off the dance floor. Grey goes on to say: “Patrick was one of the most fearless people I’ve ever met. He really embraced life and was all about going for it.”
I think it is great that Jennifer Grey is honoring the life of the entertainment industry’s biggest icons, Patrick Swayze. I will be personally rooting for her this season on Dancing With The Stars as will Patrick Swaye, in spiritual form of course.
While we lost the “Dirty Dancing” icon, Patrick Swayze, one year ago today, to his battle with pancreatic cancer, his memory will forever live on.
