Trebek reaches 1-year mark in cancer fight with hope, candorPosted: Updated:
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Alex Trebek marked his one-year battle against pancreatic cancer with candor about how hard it’s been and a vow to keep going.
In a video message posted online Wednesday, the host of “Jeopardy!” says there have been good and “not-so-good days” during his treatment, including pain and depression.
But when he wondered about continuing the fight, Trebek said he realized he couldn't stop.
To do so, he said, would be a betrayal of his wife, of other cancer patients who look to him as an inspiration and of his religious faith.
The 79-year-old Trebek hasn't faltered in his work, continuing to host the quiz show.
