Alex Trebek reveals cancer is ‘near remission’

“Jeopardy!” host Alex Trebek on Wednesday revealed a “mind-boggling” update on his cancer treatment, saying he is “near remission.”

“The doctors said they hadn’t seen this kind of positive result in their memory … some of the tumors have already shrunk by more than 50 percent,” Trebek, 78, told People magazine. “It’s kind of mind-boggling.”

Trebek announced his cancer diagnosis on-air in March.

The announcement was met with an outpouring of support from viewers of the long-time show, including lawmakers and even the CIA.
