In world exclusive photos, the NATIONAL ENQUIRER reveals that cancer-stricken Patrick Swayze IS STILL SMOKING, even as he undergoes radical chemotherapy to save his life.

In photos taken on March 10, after he left Stanford Cancer Center, Swayze is shown with a cigarette in his mouth moments before he boarded his plane at San Carlos Airport.

These are the first photos of Swayze since his diagnosis. The star has been a three-pack-a-day smoker for years, and smoking is one of the major risk factors for pancreatic cancer. Smokers are twice as likely to get the disease as non-smokers.

The NATIONAL ENQUIRER was the first to report the actor’s tragic battle with pancreatic cancer, one of the deadliest forms of the disease.
