    While emotionally, I’m heartbroken over this announcement, I’m encouraged and bolstered by Mr. Trebek’s strength and determination. Alex Trebek is a worldwide treasure. I’m sure he wouldn’t want the word “phenom” to be used, but I can’t come up with anything better. Thanks for your example, Alex—not only of how to stand up against the odds, but also for your example that education is not only important, it can be immensely fun!

    Alex Trebek is such a fighter and a class act. I will pray for you to overcome this cancer. Please be strong!!

    Both of my grandfathers died before I was born, and he is the closest thing I’ve had to one. No matter how bad I’ve ever been feeling, he was always on my tv screen at 7:30 six days a week, counting the Saturday rerun. When I had serious brain damage, his show helped me immensely with my recovery. I’m not ready to see him go, and I hope he’s able to fight the odds and keep on living.

  7. Get lots of sun Alex, it really helps cure most ailments. If possible, watch sunrise and sunset. Follow Dr. Jack Kruse for more info. Sending prayers and positive thoughts your way!

    My husband and I were so saddened to hear of Alex Trebex’s illness. It felt like hearing bad news about a dear friend. But i am certain Alex will avail himself of the best and newest treatments. Hope all that is done will return good results.

    We are with you Alex Trebek May you be successful in all your efforts.

    He is a national treasure and a role model for intelligence, dignity and literacy.

    I was so saddened to hear this. Alex is family to us, and I always looked forward to visiting every night. On weekends I found myself wishing for Monday so I could see Jeopardy. I felt like he would always be there. He is one person I always wanted to meet, and talk with in person.

    Despite the odds I am convinced if anyone can do it Alex can. I am praying for you Alex until I see the video where you tell us you have won.

    God bless,
    Don Freeburger

    I know he’s a fighter. He beat the crap out of me when I was 12, when I was going out (or trying to) with his sister Roberta in Scarborough, Ontario. He was about 5 years older than I was at the time.

  14. Jesse Steele | March 8, 2019 at 12:47 pm |

    we all love you Alex, and we have to say we are not that scared, because we know you can kick cancers butt! We are praying for you, thank you for 35 years for greatness -love the Steele family

  15. Prayers for you and your family, Mr. Trebek. You have a tremendous amount of support. Your faith will see you through.

    Best wishes to you as you battle this evil disease, Alex. As a person in remission for almost two years, I know the battle you face. A good attitude is one of the best weapons in this fight. My thoughts and prayers will be with you every day.

  19. Mr. Trebek, I remember when you hosted ‘Concentration’. You remain a gentleman and a scholar. My prayers are with you and your family.

    My husband and I had the honor of having our picture taken with Alex on the 2013 Turner Classic Movie Cruise because we won a Jeopardy trivia contest. We were thrilled to have met him. Our prayers go out to him and his family.
