Alex Trebek Announces Cancer Diagnosis

Longtime Jeopardy host Alex Trebek announced yesterday on the show's YouTube channel that he has been diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer. Trebek made the announcement on the YouTube channel to avoid, as he explained, misinformation from press reports. Trebek said he would fight the disease with help from his family along with prayers from followers of the long running show.

Trebek has been hosting the popular game show since the 90's and joked in the video that he has to beat the cancer because he has three more years on his contract.
