Alex Trebek is a beloved television personality. This Canadian American personality is also a game show host and an actor. The syndicated game show “Jeopardy” was hosted by him and will be hosted by him till the year 2022. He has also been seen in a number of TV shows in which interestingly so, he has played none other than himself.
The onset of the year 2020 brought about a lot of not so good news whether it was the Amazon fires or the Australian fires, whether it was the news and rumors of World war 3, whether it was an asteroid hitting and destroying the earth forever or whether it is the deadly coronavirus that resulted in a global pandemic. Another disheartening news for the fans of Alexander Trebek came jolting around at the beginning of the year 2020 that he is diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer.
Since then nothing has been the same for the fans of Alex Trebek. They have been showering him with their prayers and love from all around the world and even the hashtag #weloveyouAlex has been trending on Twitter for a long time now.
Alex is one of those people who doesn’t hide about his personal life, and similarly, he has been quite open and honest about his condition and his illness. From all we know, it’s seriously in danger.
Here’s what we know about his health:
It was a year ago that Alex and all his fans got to know about his illness when he shared it with the general public. From what he said, he had casually gone for a regular medical checkup to his regular doctor complaining about severe stomach pain that he had been having for the past few days to which he got to know that he had this deadly disease.
Nothing has been the same after that he has been visiting the clinic regularly and has been taking regular medical checkups as well as many different therapies to treat the lethal disease. Alex is a very mentally strong person, he has always been a high spirited person. Though chemotherapy has made him weak physically he has inspired us all by being very strong mentally.
Some latest updates about his health conditions:
Since he revealed to the general public that he has stage 4 pancreatic cancer at the beginning of the year 2020, he has received enormous amounts of love and prayers from his fans as well as celebrities from all around the world. That love has really kept him going.
However, quite recently Alex celebrated his one-year-long fight against fatal cancer which he was diagnosed with. And to speak the truth, he is quite happy about it because only about 18% of people who are diagnosed with pancreatic cancer survive as long as 1 year and he is one of them and therefore it’s extremely great news for him as well as his fans and well-wishers.
However, he got to know about his cancer at stage 4 which was already quite advanced and there was not much that even doctors could do. And therefore, he said that he has only got a few days left with him and is also quite sad about it. Though on another note, he said that he is quite happy that he lived his life to the fullest, enjoying each and every moment.
Latest about his show – Jeopardy
On a quite happy note, he said that he will be hosting the Jeopardy show one more time which must be great news for all his fans who had been eagerly waiting for something from him.
It was August 2019, when he announced about hosting one more season of the show. That season was going to be resumed in mid-July amidst the coronavirus pandemic.
But it is also to be noted that it will happen only if he is in good enough health condition to do it. Otherwise, it may also be canceled. He has hosted the show for 30 years now which is quite a long time and if the show cancels in July then it will also mark an end to his 30-year-old tenure.
For now, we should all pray for his good health. And though there are little chances of his survival, let’s believe in miracles.
