Today’s Dish: Alex Trebek beating the odds

CT Style

Alex Trebek is making it clear he’s not giving up. The official twitter account of his game show ‘Jeopardy!’ shared video of Trebek talking about his prognosis.

A year ago he was diagnosed with stage four pancreatic cancer. He says the one-year survival rate for the stage 4 pancreatic cancer is only 18 percent. Trebek says he’s beating his cancer odds:

“I’m very happy to report I have just reached that marker. I’d be lying if I said the journey had been an easy one.There were some good days but a lot of not so very good days. I joked with friends that the cancer won’t kill me, the chemo treatments will. There were moments of great pain, days when certain bodily functions no longer functioned and sudden, massive attacks of great depression that made me wonder if it really was worth fighting on. But I brushed that aside quickly, because that would’ve been a massive betrayal.”
