[Ed. – ‘I’ll take Great News for a thousand.’]
Alex Trebek shared some great news about his health with “Jeopardy!” fans on Thursday.
The legendary host said in a video released by the game show that his chemotherapy treatments have concluded and he is back to work, five months after being diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer.
“I’ve gone through a lot of chemotherapy and thankfully, that is now over,” he said. “I’m on the mend, and that’s all I can hope for right now.”
The video shows Trebek, who celebrated his 79th birthday last month, in his customary spot as production for the 36th season of the iconic game show gets underway.
It’s the latest positive news for Trebek, who remained upbeat when telling fans about his diagnosis in March.
“Now normally, the prognosis for this is not very encouraging, but I’m going to fight this, and I’m going to keep working,” he said.
