Alex Trebek is feeling positive about his health as he continues treatment for stage IV pancreatic cancer ahead of his 80th birthday.
“I am doing well,” theJeopardy!host, 79, said in a YouTube video. “I have been continuing my treatment and it is paying off, though it does fatigue me a great deal. My numbers are good. I am feeling great.”
Trebek also shared that he has been recording show openings from home amid the coronavirus pandemic for specialJeopardy!episodes that will feature archived footage from the show’s 36-year history. The four-week retrospective series starts on Monday, July 20, and includes the first episode Trebek hosted in 1984.
“I can’t wait to return to the studio and start recording shows for the new season in September,” the game show host concluded. “Meanwhile, my wish for all of you, stay safe!”
