Alex Trebek announced on social media that he has been diagnosed with Stage 4 pancreatic cancer. Sadly, this form of cancer has a very low survival rate. My father and Uncle Ben suffered from this dreaded disease over 20 years ago. My Dad was treated with a combination of chemotherapy and radiation and survived about 2 years after the diagnosis. The doctors felt that radiation shrunk the tumor and slowed the progression of the disease.
As a long time fan of Jeopardy, I am saddened by this announcement. I was glad to hear that Alex wants to fight the disease and is taking a positive attitude. My Prayers go out for him.
