Jeopardy star, Alex Trebec on his cancer treatment

Local News

Alex Trebek, the long-running host of the hit game show Jeopardy! has recently entered chemotherapy treatment for stage four pancreatic cancer. 

After completing his first treatment Trebek made a statement to his fans saying: 

“They are VERY happy with the way I have responded to the chemo and in fact say that I am ‘near remission.’ I want to be clear that I am not cured and not in remission, but the doctors say they have never seen such a positive response to chemo. I believe that this response is due in large part to the thoughts and prayers of all of my friends, co-workers, and the millions of fans who have been sending positive energy on my behalf.” 

PEOPLE Magazine is publishing an exclusive on Trebek in their June issue which is available online now and it will be hitting newsstands on Friday, May 31.
