“Jeopardy” host Alex Trebek has been diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer, he told fans in a YouTube video.

In the video, Trebek, 78, says despite the low statistics of this type of cancer he will fight it and continue to work.┬áTrebek has hosted “Jeopardy” since 1984.

“With the love and support of my family and friends and with the help of your prayers also, I plan to beat the low survival rate statistics for this disease.”

Even though Trebek’s news was not happy, he ended his message with a joke, saying he must beat this disease because his contract states he has to host “Jeopardy” for three more years.”
