Patrick Swayze

Patrick Swayze’s representative has blasted an Indiana family for illegally using the actor’s likeness in an online campaign, which calls for new cancer treatments to be made available in the U.S.

The Loughmans of Indianapolis launched their new initiative on Monday in a desperate bid to find a cure for the family matriarch, who ironically is a big fan of the ailing Ghost star.

Connie Loughman was diagnosed with deadly pancreatic cancer last summer (Aug07), just months before Swayze was diagnosed (Jan07).

As part of their public campaign to force U.S. medical bosses to make the treatment possible, the Loughman family has launched the website CureConnieAndPatrick.com - which uses the actor’s name and photo to promote the cause.

The site features information about Connie’s struggle with the illness, and prompts people to leave messages of support for the Ghost actor.

But Swayze’s spokesperson is angry the star has been directly linked to the campaign without the Loughmans seeking his consent, according to TheCelebrityTruth.com.

The representative says, "Patrick is not aware of this website, and he has no association with it or the medication it advertises.

"He is not affiliated with the woman from the site; Patrick had no knowledge of her."
