Patrick Swayze is still receiving treatment for pancreatic cancer, his rep told PEOPLE Thursday after reports surfaced that he'd decided to halt treatment.

"The reports are not true. Patrick is continuing his treatment," said Annett Wolf.

Swayze, 56, was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer last March. Earlier this month, he briefly checked himself into the hospital for pneumonia.

The actor has vowed to fight his cancer, telling PEOPLE recently, "I am alive and plan on continuing to stay that way."

The actor's new A&E series, The Beast, premiered on Jan. 15.
