On the same day RadarOnline.com posted exclusive video of Patrick Swayze smoking, we can also report that, ironically, Swayze is taking his cancer battle to Washington .

Swayze, who stars on A&E's freshman drama The Beast , is suffering from pancreatic cancer. Despite our cameras showing Swayze smoking recently, he's now calling on Congress to increase funding for research into the disease.

In a letter in the Washington Post, the 56-year-old told politicians to "stop talking... and do something about it."

In a letter to the Post, the actor said: "My message to our senators and representatives is simple - vote for the maximum funding to let the National Institutes of Health fight cancer and other life-threatening illnesses.

"It's not only good for our nation's health, it is also good for our economic well-being."
