Almost 3 months after he revealed his pancreatic cancer diagnosis, Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek is giving an update on his progress and says that he's "near remission."
"It's kind of mind-boggling," Trebek said. "The doctors said they hadn't seen this kind of positive result in their memory."
He revealed that some of his tumors have "shrunk by almost 50%", and he cried "tears of joy" when he found out how well he's been responding to the treatment.
"I told the doctors, 'This has to be more than just the chemo,' and they agreed it could very well be an important part of this," he said."I’ve got a lot of love out there headed in my direction and a lot pf prayer, and I will never ever minimize the value of that."
