Alex Trebek Stuns Fans With ‘Mind-Boggling’ Cancer Update
Fans have been praying for “Jeopardy” host Alex Trebek ever since he revealed two months ago that he had been diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer. Now, it appears that our prayers have been answered, as Trebek has just revealed that his cancer is in near remission!
Fox News reported that Trebek, 78, said that even his doctors have been left shocked by how well his body has responded to chemotherapy, and at how quickly his tumors have shrunk.
“It’s kind of mind-boggling,” Trebek said. “The doctors said they hadn’t seen this kind of positive result in their memory… some of the tumors have already shrunk by more than 50 percent.”
The longtime game show host went on to say that he cried “happy tears” when he learned that he was nearly in remission. He also said that he believes he had a major advantage over others who have battled this disease because he had millions of fans praying for him.
“I’ve got a couple million people out there who have expressed their good thoughts, their positive energy directed toward me and their prayers,” Trebek said. “I told the doctors, this has to be more than just the chemo, and they agreed it could very well be an important part of this. I’ve got a lot of love out there headed in my direction and a lot of prayers, and I will never ever minimize the value of that.”
This is EXACTLY why we pray, and it shows just how powerful prayer really is. This type of cancer has just a nine percent survival rate, yet thanks to our prayers, Trebek has already almost beaten it after just a few weeks of treatment.
While Trebek is feeling much better about his situation and is grateful for all the support he has received, he made sure to add that he is not out of the woods yet, as he still has a few more grueling chemotherapy treatments to go through before he can be declared in full remission. That being said, Trebek is feeling stronger than ever before in this cancer battle, and he’s confident that the prayers of his fans will continue to get him through until he is in full remission!
