The host of the popular show ‘Jeopardy’, Alex Trebek has been diagnosed with stage four pancreatic cancer.
The 78-year-old told everyone that he has been diagnosed with stage four pancreatic cancer through a statement which his famous show’s social media accounts shared.
He said in the statement that he will remain with the show and try to beat cancer.
“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.”
Trebek recently told People that he wishes he’d met his wife earlier to have a long life together.
“I’m pretty satisfied with my life. But my wife Jean and I have been together almost 29 years, and I was thinking about President Bush when he died, and all the comments about his life about what a nice guy he is, and how he and his wife had been together 73 years.”
“I thought, ‘Oh my Gosh … If I’d just met Jean in my 20s we could have had a long life together.’”
“I guess if I’d met her when I was in my 20s she wouldn’t have been born yet. But hey, 29 years is pretty good!”
