September 17, 2019

Alex Trebek revealed on Tuesday's Good Morning America that he's undergoing chemotherapy agains after announcing in August that he was "on the mend" from pancreatic cancer. “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 [the doctors> said, ‘Good, we’re going to stop chemo and start you on immunotherapy,’” the 79-year-old Jeopardy! host explained. “And then I lost about 12 pounds in a week and my numbers went sky-high...So the doctors have decided that I have to undergo chemo again, and that’s what I’m doing.” He added, "Cancer is mysterious in more ways than one."
