[ # ] Alex Trebek says he will stop treatment if this round fails

Yesterday, Alex Trebek gave us an update on his stage IV pancreatic cancer, and he looked like he was doing. Well, looks can be deceiving.

Today, The New York Times revealed what was going on behind the scenes a few weeks ago when he made that video. He woke up that morning feeling like crap and in a lot of pain. He was not sure if he had the energy to tape the introductions for the upcoming repeat Jeopardy episode. However, there is an adrenialine rush that takes over when you go on camera. That is what he saw.

Last year, Trebek told us he was doing better, but now his prognosis has worsened. So much so, there was a day that he wanted to die. He says, “There comes a time where you have to make a decision as to whether you want to continue with such a low quality of life, or whether you want to just ease yourself into the next level. It doesn’t bother me in the least.”

He has made the decision that if this round of treatment does not work, he will not go another round. He is not afraid to die.

We are not at that point yet. Trebek plans on hosting Jeopardy until he no longer can do it to his satisfaction.

Trebek has been a pillar of strength throughout his cancer battle. Let’s say a prayer for him.

This Tuesday, his memoir, The Answer Is …: Reflections on My Life, comes out. Then on Wednesday, he turns 80.
