Alex Trebek gave an update on the one year anniversary of his stage four pancreatic cancer diagnosis. The 79-year-old Jeopardy host says he’s defied the odds. In a video, he told fans that the one year survival rate for stage four pancreatic cancer is 18 percent.
Trebek revealed moments of great pain and depression but assured fans that he quickly pushed those aside for the sake of his wife and the many cancer patients who look to him for inspiration. The popular game show host says he plans to celebrate the 2nd anniversary this time next year, with survival pegged around 7 percent.
