Alex Trebek admitted his journey has not been an easy one and that he almost lost hope while dealing with severe bouts of depression but he's happy he didn't.
The "Jeopardy!" host shared an update to mark the momentous milestone of living another year. It's a big deal because the one-year survival rate for patients with stage 4 pancreatic cancer is said to be 18% and Trebek has just passed the one year mark. He shared a video with his fans to thank them and give credit to his wife for sacrificing so much to help Alex with his treatment.
"I'd be lying if I said the journey had been an easy one," Trebek explained in his video. "I joked with friends that the cancer won't kill me, the chemo treatments will."
"There were moments of great pain, days where certain bodily functions no longer functioned, and sudden massive attacks of great depression that made me wonder if it was really worth fighting on," he stated.
