A Message From Alex Trebek | JEOPARDY!

  • Published on:  Wednesday, March 6, 2019
  • "Hi everyone, I have some news to share with all of you and it’s in keeping with my longtime policy of being open and transparent with our Jeopardy! fan base. I also wanted to prevent you from reading or hearing some overblown or inaccurate reports regarding my health. So therefore, I wanted to be the one to pass along this information.

    Now, just like 50,000 other people in the United States each year, this week I was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer. Now normally, the prognosis for this is not very encouraging, but I’m going to fight this, and I’m going to keep working. And with the love and support of my family and friends and with the help of your prayers also, I plan to beat the low survival rate statistics for this disease. Truth told, I have to! Because under the terms of my contract, I have to host Jeopardy! for three more years! So help me. Keep the faith and we’ll win. We’ll get it done. Thank you."

    Alex please contact Dr Holt in Australia for his radiotherapy treatment. Look into it. Chemo is not the way to go despite the remission you had and it's horrendous for your body's restorative abilities.

    Oh, please with the prayers. This huckster has used his phony game-show 'class act' to rip-off seniors with that Colonial Penn $9.95 crap he made a FORTUNE from, as spokesman - luring seniors who 'had kept faith' in you - into a bad plan that doesn't payout. Stop worshiping hucksters - just like the someone who lives on Pennsylvania Ave who many only wish could get the same fate as Mr. Trebek... Boo!

    Its great to know cancer can be beaten. I am amazed with Mr. Trebek's attitude and recovery. I have witnessed more then one person go through chemotherapy. They are all deceased from various types of cancer. I dont believe chemotherapy saved his life. I suspect he had another type of therapy that the average person can not afford.
