‘Jeopardy!’ host Alex Trebek may leave show over cancer battle
“I’m sure there are observant members of the television audience that notice also, but they’re forgiving,” Trebek said. “But there will come a point when they (fans and producers) will no longer be able to say, ‘It’s OK.'”
Trebek also shared that he’s “not afraid of dying.” “I’ve lived a good life, a full life, and I’m nearing the end of that life… If it happens, why should I be afraid of that?” he said.
The 79-year-old has hosted the show since 1984. Trebek revealed in March that he was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer but assured fans that he planned to fight the illness and continue working.
I takes one hell of a person to look death in the eye and have the same kind of backbone and outlook Trebeck has.
I wish him the best and hope he beats the odds.
My hat is off to him and everyone else in the world that is suffering in the same manner Trebeck is.
BEST WISHES ALEX
