Alex Trebek Has Suffered 'Moments of Depression' During Cancer Battle

Alex Trebek has been battling pancreatic cancer and he is opening up about his health in a new interview.

The longtime Jeopardy host, 79, chatted with Michael Strahan to talk about how the battle with cancer has affected his life.

“I don’t mind getting choked up. My oncologist told me one of the symptoms, if you will, of pancreatic cancer is that you get these moments of depression, sadness,” he said.

Alex says that he went to see the doctor after he experienced severe stomach pain.

“I knew as soon as the doctor came back and mentioned the pancreas. I said, ‘Uh-oh, it’s going to be cancer,’” he added.
