“Jeopardy!” host Alex Trebek gave an update on his ongoing treatment for pancreatic cancer, telling fans, “I’m doing well.”
“I’ve been continuing my treatment and it is paying off, though it does fatigue me a great deal,” Trebek said in the video posted Thursday on the official “Jeopardy!” Twitter page. “My numbers are good; I’m feeling great.”
The host said he was looking forward to recording new studio episodes of “Jeopardy!” and that for the month of July, the show would open its vaults to air fan-favorite episodes, including Trebek’s first on-air appearance in 1984. “Moustache and all,” the host added, referring to the famous facial hair he sported for nearly two decades.
The “Jeopardy!” host said in the March update that he’d had “sudden massive attacks of great depression” during his chemotherapy, but that giving up would be a “betrayal” of both his wife and other cancer patients who were looking to him “as an inspiration and a cheerleader of sorts.”
