Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek has been with the show since 1984 and has been a household name ever since. Earlier today, he shared that he’s been diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer.
Alex announced this in a video posted on Jeopardy!‘s social media accounts, saying that “normally the prognosis for [his cancer] is not very encouraging.” But he’s hopeful that he will fight this disease and will continue to keep working. “I plan to beat the low survival rate statistics for this disease.”
