Alex Trebek suffered a setback in his battle with pancreatic cancer, and he’s getting chemotherapy again.
On “Good Morning America“ yesterday, he said, quote, “I was doing so well. And my numbers went down to the equivalent of a normal human being who does not have pancreatic cancer. So we were all very optimistic.
“And they said, ‘Good, we’re gonna stop chemo, we’ll start you on immunotherapy.’ I lost about 12 pounds in a week. And my numbers went sky-high, much higher than they were when I was first diagnosed.”
“So, the doctors have decided that I have to undergo chemo again and that’s what I’m doing.”
Alex isn’t giving in, obviously, but he’s not afraid to die, either. He said, quote, “I realize that there is an end in sight for me, just as there is for everyone else . . . I’ve had one hell of a good life. And I’ve enjoyed it . . .
“The thought of passing on doesn’t frighten me . . . hey folks, it comes with the territory.”
