ALEX TREBEK: Positive Health News

Written by on May 30, 2019

Alex Trebek promised to fight his stage-four pancreatic cancer and he recently received some good news that will keep him optimistic. 

The Jeopardy! host says he’s responding very well to chemotherapy and his cancer is in near-remission. The 78-year-old tells People magazine, “It’s kind of mind-boggling. The doctors said they hadn’t seen this kind of positive result in their memory… Some of the tumors have already shrunk by more than 50 percent.”

Trebek believes he has a unique advantage in his fight against cancer because he has a ton of support. “I’ve got a couple million people out there who have expressed their good thoughts, their positive energy directed toward me and their prayers. I told the doctors, this has to be more than just the chemo, and they agreed it could very well be an important part of this. I’ve got a lot of love out there headed in my direction and a lot of prayers, and I will never ever minimize the value of that.”
