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.”
