Last week, the beloved host of Jeopardy!, revealed that he had been diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer. At first, he stated that this news wasn’t encouraging, but that he was going to continue to work and fight through this. He even joked around saying, “under the terms of my contract, I have to host Jeopardy! for three more years! So help me. Keep the faith and we’ll win. We’ll get it done. Thank you.”.
Fans have been pouring out messages to the host of 35 years, helping him on his journey and keeping his spirits up. He is shown to be back at work and filming new episodes of the show, doing well in the process. Trebek has released a video on the Jeopardy! twitter to thank fans for everything they have been doing since his announcement.
