[ # ] Alex Trebek gives an update on his cancer
March 4th, 2020 under Jeopardy

A year ago, Alex Trebek revealed to the world that he has Stage IV Pancreatic cancer. The survival rate for someone who has it, to make it a year is just 18%. As you can see, he is one of the 18%. That is why he chose now to give us an update on his health.

“I’d be lying if I said the journey had been an easy one. There were some good days, but a lot of not-so-good days. I joked with friends that the cancer won’t kill me, the chemo treatments will.

“There were moments of great pain, days when certain bodily functions no longer functioned and sudden, massive attacks of great depression that made me wonder if it really was worth fighting on.”

However, those feelings did not last long because he did not want to betray the people who love and care for him. One of those groups of people is others who are also going through cancer. He has some advice for them, “If I, no, we, because so many of us are involved in this same situation, if we take it just one day at a time with a positive attitude, anything is possible.”

That is why his doctor told him that even though the 2-year survival rate is only 7%, his physician is “certain Trebek will be there getting an update from him.

I guess you can say he is out of Jeopardy. Only from cancer and not the show that he hosts.

Seriously, he is a role model because he shows us that we do have a chance of beating even the most incurable of cancers. I will take, that is inspiring news for $2,000, Alex.
