Thank You From Alex Trebek | JEOPARDY!

Thank You From Alex Trebek | JEOPARDY!

“Hi everyone, I just want to take a few moments to say thanks to the – believe it or not – hundreds of thousands of people who have sent in tweets, texts, emails, cards and letters wishing me well following my recent health announcement. I’ve heard from former contestants – even Watson, the IBM computer, sent me a get-well card.

Now obviously, I won’t be able to respond to all of you individually, but I do want you to know that I do read everything I receive. And I am thankful for the kind words, the prayers and the advice you have offered, and I’m extremely touched by the warmth you have expressed in your comments to me. I’m a lucky guy.”

  8. riley h says:

    Thanks so much Alex. You are such a thoughtful and downright awesome human being.

    • riley h says:

      +Kevin Zhou no….it’s called showing compassion to my fellow human being. Try it sometime.

    • No says:

      +Kevin Zhou Because we don’t know how much longer they’re going to be around for, so we want to tell them how we feel before we lose that chance. Also, we just care about Alex and want him to know that, especially in this time.

    • Kevin Zhou says:

      +Sean Colyer Even when its someone that you see frequently like a classmate or coworker, they’ll be treated just like anyone else, but then if something happens to them all of a sudden everyone has so much love and admiration for that person…its totally dumb human irrationality and this comment section is a prime example.

    • Kevin Zhou says:

      +riley h You wanna kiss my ass? Try it sometime.

    • Kevin Zhou says:

      +No If he’s smart then he knows you only partially mean it.

  9. Caleb Krahn says:

    Best wishes, Trebek! We’re praying for you.

  10. C Sodhi says:

    I just have a question. Who would dislike this video?
    So positive and yet someone dislikes it.

  11. Doug Taylor says:

    We’re the lucky ones that you have always been yourself. Life is worth fighting for. Cheers to you, good sir.

  12. Falisha Dillard says:

    Alex Trebek you are truly one of a kind and you’re in my prayers. Keep fighting

  13. TheWumboTrolley says:

    This man is going to beat cancer.

    Who is Alex Trebek?

    You got this man, we love ya!

    • ColeHelderman says:

      +Buffalol you’re right. I misread the parts where it was talking about the factors, like age overall health and when you’re diagnosed. “The median survival rate for stage 4 pancreatic cancer is between two and six months. Though the disease cannot be cured at this stage, treatment may improve your quality of life.” Damn

    • compedium says:

      not sure that’s helpful. Pancreatic cancer generally kills no matter how hard someone fights.

    • Trolltocol9Oseven says:

      Hahahahah. Your heart
      is in the right place even though your intelligence isn’t. We should all thanks Alex i suppose for hosting a televised game show for decades. And hope that his journey to the end is painless and with love

    • Jilly bean says:

      +Jim Bob he’s keeping it real. Not to be a Debbie Downer but its a FACT, ONLY 1% survive after 5 years!… 1%! Its a death sentence. Period! If Patrick Swayze couldn’t beat it and he was in Prime physical shape and 30 years younger, I doubt Alex is going to be able to… sobering reality folks! Sorry?

  14. Harry Sack says:

    Alex is a class act. Great guy. Get well soon Mr. Trebek.

  15. shist du says:

    Been watching Jeopardy ever since I was little. Thank you for your constant hard work. Sending wishes your way ❤️

  16. rugbynimbus says:

    I suspect Alex Trebek has never needed to be reminded to send Thank You cards.

  17. Silvia Logan says:

    Alex, I am wishing the best for you.

  18. Rick OnTheDrums says:

    Cancer doesn’t know who it’s up against. Give it hell Alex!

  19. Glynette says:

    You got this. Best wishes from an 8-year cancer survivor.
