“Jeopardy!” host Alex Trebek says he has been diagnosed with stage four pancreatic cancer.
In a YouTube announcement, the 78-year-old vowed to keep working as he fights the disease. Despite the low survival statistics for pancreatic cancer, Trebek looked forward to eventually overcoming the disease. He even made light of the situation, saying he needs to beat it because his contract requires him to host the game show for another three years. Trebek has hosted “Jeopardy!” since 1984.
