It wasn’t long ago that we all found out that Alex Trebek was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer.

While he kept the most positive attitude we all still knew that the chances of survival from pancreatic cancer, in the late stages, is very rare. But, Trebek has pulled through! He has finished his chemotherapy and has returned to work on the set of Jeopardy. He says, “I’m on the mend and that’s all I can hope for right now.”

The new season of Jeopardy will premiere on September 9th.
