'Jeopardy' Host Alex Trebek
Is Back on Chemotherapy.
Just weeks ago, he had finished treatment
for stage 4 pancreatic cancer.
He had even returned to hosting the popular game show, which he
has helmed since 1984.
Trebek says he now must
undergo chemo again due
to extreme weight loss.
In only seven days, Trebek adds
that he dropped 12 pounds.
The 79-year-old also says that another chemo round is
needed due to his numbers
going way up recently.
The doctors have decided that I have to undergo chemo again and that's what I'm doing. Cancer is mysterious in more ways than one, Alex Trebek, via 'Good Morning America'.
Trebek tells 'Good Morning America' that
the thought of dying does not frighten him.
The thought of passing on doesn't frighten me, it doesn't. Other things do, the effect it will have on my loved ones ... it makes me sad. , Alex Trebek, via
'Good Morning America'.
Trebek does not have any plans
to leave 'Jeopardy' yet.
As long as I can walk out and greet the audience and the contestants and run the game, I'm happy, Alex Trebek, via
'Good Morning America'
