Alex Trebek Is a Fighter! A Complete Timeline of the ‘Jeopardy’ Host’s Pancreatic Cancer Battle

“This is Jeopardy.” The game show has been on the air since the ’60s and fans are still not over that iconic line. The series wouldn’t be the same without its beloved host, Alex Trebek — who is battling stage IV pancreatic cancer.

The 79-year-old announced early in 2019 that he was battling the disease and, despite briefly going into remission, he is once again undergoing chemotherapy treatments. Fans have been supporting him ever since he revealed the news but have also been upset that he is facing this horrible reality and the fact that his future on Jeopardy is up in the air.

All that said, Alex is very strong and we know he’s going to beat this!
