  • Published on Sep 17, 2019
  • One of the things I have learned in the past six months is that the course of pancreatic cancer treatment is not a straightforward affair. There are always curves and unexpected events.

    This summer, because I was making such good progress, we thought I was finished with chemo. That was a bit premature and certainly overoptimistic. I began immunotherapy, but that didn't go well. My numbers went south - dramatically and quickly.
    The doctors are now reexamining my situation, and it appears I will be having more chemo treatments ahead of me. Hey, they worked very well the first time, so we're expecting good results again.

    Please keep me in your good thoughts and prayers. It really means a lot.

    Alex, you are a courageous and humble man, and I admire you very much. I've been watching you since I was a kid and always keep track of how many I get right (and yes, I always answer in the form of a question). I've always wanted to be a contestant, but unfortunately I know nothing of Shakespeare, sports, or politics. You're in my family's prayers. This world will not be the same without you; probably a little dumber.

    Steve Jobs died of pancreatic cancer. Doesn't matter how rich or poor you are. We are all human beings. Everyone is equal in this life. And also in death.

    Dear Mr. Alex, I have one word to say to you I wish it reaches to you: Hang on to Yeshua (Jesus), and you will see what he will do for you. It might nor be earthly life but for sure an eternal life. I pray for you.

    Good to see that you seem quite well. My mom got the same diagnose, just 1 week before you announced it, thats why I was cheering up for you as well. Unfortunately my moms past 1.5 months went downhill a lot and therefore she didnt survive it and passed away 1 month ago. My prayers are with you Alex, really, I know its a very hard situation, but never lose hope and fight, my mom did so and I am proud of her forever. Please survive and show this cancer that he cant end lives always! With Gods help you need to get through this!

    If I could’ve exuded a FRACTION of this grace and positivity when I was diagnosed with bone cancer I’d look back now and be proud. Instead I was a raging, sobbing lunatic.
    Mr. Trebek, you are truly an inspiration. For many reasons.
