Alex Trebek taking ‘1 day at a time’ 1 year after cancer diagnosis


Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek provided an update on his health in a YouTube video posted Wednesday. It has been one year since Trebek announced he had been diagnosed with advanced pancreatic cancer. Trebek said in his “one-year update” that he’d beaten the one-year survival rate for Stage 4 pancreatic cancer patients of 18 percent, but added there had been “a lot of not-so-good days.” The 79-year-old said he brushed aside the struggle, though, for his wife, the fans who stood by him, and God.
