The walk also reached an ambitious goal of $16.5 million to fuel PanCAN’s mission to create a world in which all pancreatic cancer patients will thrive.

Alex Trebek Calls Wife Jean a 'Saint' While Talking About His Cancer Prognosis

Alex Trebek got candid in a brand new interview about his cancer diagnosis with Good Morning America.

The 79-year-old Jeopardy! host opened up about reaching a decision about his future if his current immunotherapy treatment fails, admitting that he wouldn’t going through “any extraordinary measures to ensure my survival.”

It was a tough decision to make and telling his children - Matthew, Emily and Nicky, and wife Jean – wasn’t easy, but they “handled it beautifully.”

“They understand that there is a certain element regarding quality of life. And if the quality of life is not there — it’s hard sometimes to push and just say, ‘Well, I’m gonna keep going even though I’m miserable.’”

Alex also gave a lot of credit to wife Jean, who he’s been married to for 30 years.

“There was one day a few weeks ago when Jeanie asked me in the morning, ‘How do you feel?’ And I said, ‘I feel like I wanna die.’ It was that bad,” he shared. “I apologize to her and explain that it has nothing to do with my love for her or my feelings for her. It just has to do with the fact that I feel like I’m a terrible burden to her. And that bothers me tremendously.”

“She’s a saint,” Alex added. “She has so much goodness in her that she is always giving out, always putting out to help me get over difficult moments. And there have been some difficult moments. I’m just in awe of the way she handles it.”

Just recently, Alex donated a large sum to help fight homelessness. See how much here…
