Alex Trebek: His health update from March
Trebek announced his cancer diagnosis in 2019. He most recently offered an update on his health in early March 2020, when he revealed that he had already defied the odds of survival one year after his diagnosis.
The odds of a two-year survival decrease to seven percent, he noted. But at that time, he said he was taking it "one day at a time" and staying positive during chemotherapy treatment.
