One year after being diagnosed with stage four pancreatic cancer,Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek posted a video update for his fans. After noting that the one-year survival rate for patients is 18%, Trebek said: "I'm very happy to report I have just reached that marker. Now, I'd be lying if I said the journey had been an easy one. There were some good days but a lot of not-so-good days. I joked with friends that the cancer won't kill me, the chemo treatments will." He added: "There were moments of great pain, days when certain bodily functions no longer functioned, and sudden, massive attacks of great depression that made me wonder if it really was worth fighting on." Still: "If we take it just one day at a time with a positive attitude, anything is possible."
