Alex Trebek to receive more chemotherapy


(WIVB) — Alex Trebek will be undergoing chemotherapy treatment again.

This past March, the 79-year-old Jeopardy! host announced that he was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer.

Just weeks ago, Trebek returned to work on the game show and said he was “on the mend” after receiving treatment.

Tuesday morning, in an interview on ABC’s Good Morning America, Trebek was asked about his summer plans to both rebuild his strength and regrow his hair.

When asked how that process was, he described it as “dismal.”

Trebek then went on to reveal he will be receiving chemotherapy again.

“What little hair I have grown will disappear again,” Trebek said.

Jeopardy’s 36th season began airing on September 9. You can watch it every weeknight at 7:30 on CBS.
