“Jeopardy!” host Alex Trebek says “positive energy” from fans may have played a role in what doctors have called the “near remission” of his stage 4 pancreatic cancer.
The 78-year-old revealed the news in a People magazine cover story Wednesday.
“It’s kind of mind-boggling,” he said, adding that some of his tumours have shrunk “by more than 50 per cent.”
“I’ve got a couple million people out there who have expressed their good thoughts, their positive energy directed towards me and their prayers,” he told People. “I told the doctors, this has to be more than just the chemo, and they agreed it could very well be an important part of this.”
