“The one-year survival rate for stage IV pancreatic cancer patients is 18 percent. I’m very happy to report I have just reached that marker. I’d be lying if I said the journey had been an easy one,” he said.

“There were moments of great pain, days when certain bodily functions no longer functioned, and sudden massive attacks of great depression that made me wonder if it really was worth fighting on. But I brushed that aside quickly because that would have been a massive betrayal — a betrayal of my wife and soulmate, Jean, who has given her all to help me survive. It would have been a betrayal of other cancer patients who have looked to me as an inspiration and a cheerleader of sorts of the value of living and hope. And it would certainly have been a betrayal of my faith in God and the millions of prayers that had been said on my behalf.”

“You know something? If I, no, if we — because so many of us are involved in this same situation — if we take it just one day at a time with a positive attitude, anything is possible,” he went on to conclude.

Alex Trebek's Wife Jean Shares Toughest Part of His Cancer Battle

The 79-year-old Jeopardy! host has been fighting stage 4 pancreatic cancer for almost a year.

“For me, it’s when I see him in pain and I can’t help him,” Jean said in a recent interview with Good Morning America‘s Michael Strahan. “When he doesn’t eat right. When he has too much diet soda.”

When asked if she’s ever suggested that Alex take a break from the game show, Jean Currivan Trebek replied, “Yes, to my girlfriends, yes. But I know its what feeds him. He loves doing Jeopardy. He has his own family over there. They are such a close-knit, beautiful group of people. I think that gives him a lot of support. A sense of purpose and that he’s just not in bed and can be productive.”

Alex Trebek chimed in about his wife, “It’s always tough for the caretakers because she has to deal with her worrying for my well-being and also dealing with… I’m not always the most pleasant person to be around when I am experiencing severe pain and depression, and she has to tread lightly around me.
