Alex Trebek Says He's "Not Afraid of Dying," but May Leave 'Jeopardy!' Soon


The household name and Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek has been open and honest with the public about his battle with pancreatic cancer. In March, he announced to the public that he was diagnosed with stage four pancreatic cancer, and was beginning to undergo chemotherapy for treatment. 

At the time, he said that while he was struggling with his health, he would continue to host the TV show as long as he could. 

But while we had hoped to keep our favorite game show host around for a while longer, it looks as though he may be leaving our screens sooner rather than later.

But how soon is Alex leaving Jeopardy!?

Alex said he would stay until his treatment affected his performance.
