Alex Trebek anunció este 6 de marzo que está luchando contra el cáncer de páncreas en etapa 4. Trebek tiene 78 años. En el video, que fue publicado en YouTube, el presentador del programa “Jeopardy!”, Trebek les dice a sus fans que le diagnosticaron la enfermedad esta semana. Trebek dice que se une a otros 50,000 estadounidenses para combatir el cáncer de páncreas. La etapa 4 significa que el cáncer se ha diseminado a otras partes del cuerpo.

Trebek dijo en el video: “Voy a luchar contra esto, y voy a seguir trabajando. Y con el amor y el apoyo de mi familia y amigos y también con la ayuda de sus oraciones, planeo superar las bajas estadísticas de supervivencia de esta enfermedad “.

Trebek termina su mensaje bromeando, diciéndole a sus seguidores que tiene que vencer la enfermedad porque, “según los términos de mi contrato, ¡tengo que presentar Jeopardy! por tres años más! Así que ayúdenme. Manténgan la fe y ganaremos. Lo haremos. Gracias”.

A Message From Alex Trebek | JEOPARDY!"Hi everyone, I have some news to share with all of you and it’s in keeping with my longtime policy of being open and transparent with our Jeopardy! fan base. I also wanted to prevent you from reading or hearing some overblown or inaccurate reports regarding my health. So therefore, I wanted to be the one to pass along this information. Now, just like 50,000 other people in the United States each year, this week I was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer. Now normally, the prognosis for this is not very encouraging, but I’m going to fight this, and I’m going to keep working. And 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. Truth told, I have to! Because under the terms of my contract, I have to host Jeopardy! for three more years! So help me. Keep the faith and we’ll win. We’ll get it done. Thank you."

Alex Trebek Pancreatic Cancer

Según el American Cancer Society, una persona con cáncer de páncreas en etapa 4 tiene un 3 por ciento de probabilidades de sobrevivir cinco años con la enfermedad. La mayoría de los pacientes con cáncer de páncreas se diagnostican en la etapa 4. La enfermedad más comúnmente se propaga al hígado, la pared abdominal, los pulmones, los huesos y los ganglios linfáticos lejanos. Usualmente los pacientes con este tipo de cáncer reciben quimioterapia, ya que el cáncer se ha diseminado, la cirugía no es una opción en la etapa 4.

Trebek dijo en el video anterior que el pronóstico era bueno y que esperaba volver a presentar “Jeopardy!” dentro de poco tiempo. A pesar de su ausencia, los productores del programa nunca transmitieron ningún episodio con un anfitrión invitado.
