LOS ANGELES  — “Jeopardy!” host Alex Trebek says his doctors say he’s in “near remission” of advanced pancreatic cancer and his response to the treatment is “kind of mind-boggling.”

The 78-year-old TV personality tells People magazine he’s responding very well to chemotherapy and the doctors have told him “they hadn’t seen this kind of positive results in their memory.” Trebek says some of the tumors have shrunk by more than 50%.

Trebek announced his diagnosis in March, but said he intended to keep working. He said he planned to beat the disease’s low survival rate with the love and support of family and friends and with prayers from viewers.

The American Cancer Society estimates 3% of patients with stage 4 pancreatic cancer are alive 5 years after being diagnosed.

Trebek says he still has several more rounds of treatment to hopefully get into full remission.

  • I PURCHASED A TRIAL OF THE CBD PRODUCTS ALEX SPEAKS OF AND ENDORSES IN HIS AD. I AM POSITIVE HE DOES NOT KNOW WHAT THE SPONSOR COMPANY IS DOING, BUT I ORDERED A TRIAL SHIPMENT AND DECIDED THAT I COULD NOT AFFORD TO RECEIVE MONTHLY SHIPMENTS AND TRIED UNSUCCESSFULLY TO CANCEL MY ENROLLMENT. THE COMPANY SHIPPED 2 SHIPMENTS TOTALLING ALMOST

    THIS IS A SCAM. I WAS “SUPPOSEDLY” SHIPPED 2 SHIPMENTS OF THIS TREBECK ENDORSED PRODUCT (WHICH I NEVER RECEIVED) AND THE COMPANY REFUSES TO GIVE ME BACK THE MONEY THEY DRAFTED FROM MY BANK ACCOUNT,,,ALMOST $200… . AND NEITHER MY BANK NOR I HAVE BEEN ABLE TO GET THEM TO RESPOND TO MY CLAIM TO GET MY MONEY BACK! I KNOW ALEX WOULD NEVER AGREE TO BE AFFILIATED WITH A COMPANY WHOSE BUSINESS PRACTICES WOULD STEAL FROM THE PUBLIC LIKE THIS COMPANY IS. USING THE LINK WITHIN TREBECK’S ARTICLE, THE COMPANY’S NAME THAT CAME UP IS “STARRLI*OPUFORTEUNIQUE AT 8772840392.

  • What a remarkable man he is. Alex Trebek is a guiding light for other cancer patients to follow!

  • I try to stay on top of all the information about Alex Trebek’s health. He is such a good man and a great Jeopardy host. I hope he reaches the five year remission because Jeopardy just wouldn’t be the same without him.

  • Praise GOD/JESUS CHRIST our LORD and SAVIOUR KING of KINGS;
    for how your doing Alex Trebek…
    Prayer works……
    Sincerely, mark
