Alex Trebek recently appeared on Jeopardy! social media accounts to give fans an update on his health. The game show host said he is doing well. Alex was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer last year. The update comes just before his 80th birthday on July 22, 2020.

In the video, Alex said, “I’m doing well. I’ve been continuing my treatment. And it is paying off, though it does fatigue me a great deal. My numbers are good. I’m feeling great. Once again, I can’t wait to return to the studio and start recording shows for the new season in September.”
