Alex Trebek Doing Well Amid Stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer Battle

Alex Trebek says he’s doing well after being diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer in the spring.  He gave an update on his health during an interview with Robin Roberts on “Good Morning America” yesterday.  “My oncologist tells me I’m doing well, even though I don’t always feel it,” Trebek said. “I’ve had kidney stones, I’ve had ruptured disks, so I’m used to dealing with pain. What I’m not used to dealing with is these surges that come on suddenly of deep, deep sadness.”  “I’m fighting through it,” he said.  “My platelets, my blood counts are steady, my weight is steady. The cancer indicators are coming down. So I’ve got another chemo next week and then we’ll do a review to find out where things stand.”  Trebek plans to “recuperate and get strong again” over the summer before returning to Jeopardy! in the fall.  “Hopefully everything is going to turn out well and I’ll be back on the air with original programming come this September,” he said.
