Alex Trebek in "near remission" following cancer diagnosis

Recommended Posts

In what can only be described as outstanding news, Alex Trebek revealed Wednesday that his health has taken a very positive turn.

In early March, the longtime Jeopardy! host disclosed that he’d been diagnosed with Stage 4 pancreatic cancer, an illness with a grim prognosis and an approximately nine per cent survival rate.

 

Now, just over two months later, the 78-year-old Trebek’s outlook isn’t so dark: according to his doctors, he’s in “near remission,” and has been responding very well to chemotherapy.

“It’s kind of mind-boggling,” said Trebek. “The doctors said they hadn’t seen this kind of positive result in their memory… some of the tumours have already shrunk by more than 50 per cent.”
