Jeopardy Host Alex Trebek Shares One Year Cancer Update

Beloved Jeopardy host Alex Trebek shares a one-year cancer update.


In March of 2019, fan-favorite television personality Alex Trebek announced to the world that he had been diagnosed with Stage 4 pancreatic cancer. Despite the grim prognosis, he pledged to continue hosting Jeopardy and mustering up all of his strength to defeat the cancer.

Alex shared that the one-year survival rate for Stage 4 pancreatic cancer is 18%.

Today, Alex announced that he has passed that mark and he’s updating his loyal fans and supporters on his progress. “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.”

He went on to say that some days were plagued with episodes of massive depression where he wondered if it was even worth it to go on. But he would quickly put those thoughts aside because “It would have certainly been a betrayal of my faith in God and the millions of prayers that have been said on my behalf.”

He also thanked his wife, Jean, who has been by his side this entire journey and given him endless amounts of love and encouragement.

The two-year survival rate is only 7% but Alex is optimistic about his future. He left his followers with these powerful words. “If we take it just one day at a time with a positive attitude, anything is possible.”

Let us continue to lift up this inspiring man in prayer as he fights this tremendous battle.
