Patrick Swayze was diagnosed with stage IV pancreatic cancer. He died of pneumonia caused due to chemotherapy complications on September 14, 2009, at the age of 57.
Danielle and Patrick shared a great bond. In 2016, the former shared a heartfelt caption on her uncle's death anniversary.
She said that he was the only Swayze who treated her like she was not a "Swayze" but a normal girl.
The caption read:
I lost the only Swayze who didn't treat me like I HAD to carry on our "legacy," he always made me feel that whatever I wanted to do, I should do it because my happiness is all that mattered."
Patrick Swayze was worth $75 million at the time of his death. All his properties, shares, and assets were transferred to his wife, Lisa.
The couple did not have a child, and she became the sole owner of all his riches.
Later, all Swayze family members called out Lisa for neglecting them and misusing Patrick's property. Danielle was very vocal about the issue.
She publicly called out her aunt and released a statement stating how Lisa had hurt her family.
"If my Uncle were still here he would be mortified at how his "wife" has treated my family and I in just the 4 short years after he died."
Danielle also said that Lisa refused to give even the smallest souvenir, a cowboy hat or a pair of boots, nothing for his brothers or even his mother.
She further stated:
"She (Lisa) refused to pay a single penny for Granny's hospice care and/or funeral costs forcing myself to take direct action and raise Donations to bury the mother-in-law she claims deep "love and respect" for."
Swayze also claimed that she used Patrick's name only for the money and used his fans for sympathy.
