In the March of 2019, Alex Trebek, the host of The Jeopardy! sadly announced that had been diagnosed with-4 Pancreatic Cancer. Since his announcement, fans have been sending him endless amounts of love. His well-wishers have been showering love all over Twitter, Instagram, and even on Facebook.

Jeopardy's Alex Trebek on Standing up to his LAST STAGE of Life!!! #WeLoveYouAlex

Throughout his career, he has been the host of the game show Jeopardy! Since 1984, and has also hosted several other game shows, including The Wizard of Odds, Double Dare, High Rollers, Battlestars, Classic Concentration, and To Tell the Truth.

The Start of #WeLoveYouAlex

We witnessed a really emotional moment on Jeopardy, when a Dhruv Gaur, one of the contestants came up with a sweet message to Trebek, “We love you, Alex.” Alex was touched by this gesture, but the trend #We LoveYouAlex started last year after he announced that he had been diagnosed with the disease.

Updating About His Health

Recently Alex made a new announcement, wherein he shared the challenges he faced while undergoing his treatment and expressed his gratitude for everyone who supported him throughout his battle.

Trebek has continued to host the show Jeopardy, even after his diagnosis. In the starting months of this year, he also hosted the special event ‘The Greatest of All Time,’ where all the winners from the previous shows competed against each other.

Here’s the video about his update:

In the video, Alex updated the journey he has gone through in the past year. He was very open about the number of bad days he has had with chemotherapy and battling depression, and how he brushed aside everything to bring his life into his own hands. He also thanked his wife Jean and all the supporters who were praying to support him throughout.

Fans have rooted for Alex for a long time now, the kind of love and support he has received, he should really not have any regrets. We hope that we find him next year updating us about how he has beaten cancer.
