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."

    Notice how he names the fan base as “Jeopardy! Fan base” and not “My fan base”. How selfless this man is. May God keep and protect you, Alex. We love you.

    Lord, we pray to you that as you watch over the healthy and the sick, the rich and the poor, the believers and nonbelievers, and the heavens and the earth, that you may watch over this man. We thank you for a kind soul who has been a blessing of happiness for so many. May you heal him of his cancer and rejuvenate us all in faith in you and be with his friends and family as well. Father hear our prayer. In you holy name we pray, Amen. ☦🙏

    Not sure if you are a religious person Mr. Trebek but regardless you need to head to Israel since they apparently have found a cure in the last couple of weeks.

    I wish you the best regardless and if by chance, God forbid, events do not go well, I will turn on my TV in the after life to your show.

    From a forever fan of the show, I wish you as well as you family nothing but the best in life.
