#Roommates, look at God! Just two months ago, legendary Jeopardy host, Alex Trebek, announced that he had been diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer!
However, thankfully it looks like Alex Trebek has been making huge strides with his health. According to @CNN, Alex confirmed his doctors have told him his tumors have already shrunk by more than 50% and he is in ‘near remission.’
To put into perspective, the survival rate for those with Alex’s type of cancer is only 9%! Alex said he cried tears of joy when he was told. He also thanked everyone for their prayers, saying: “I’ve got a couple million people out there who have expressed their good thoughts, their positive energy directed towards me and their prayers,” he said. “I told the doctors, this has to be more than just the chemo, and they agreed it could very well be an important part of this.”
At the moment, Alex will still have to undergo several more rounds of chemotherapy before he can be fully cleared, and in full remission. We continue to pray for Alex’s recovery and hope he beats this!
