An Update from Alex | JEOPARDY!

One of the things I have learned in the past six months is that the course of pancreatic cancer treatment is not a straightforward affair. There are always curves and unexpected events.

This summer, because I was making such good progress, we thought I was finished with chemo. That was a bit premature and certainly overoptimistic. I began immunotherapy, but that didn't go well. My numbers went south - dramatically and quickly.
The doctors are now reexamining my situation, and it appears I will be having more chemo treatments ahead of me. Hey, they worked very well the first time, so we're expecting good results again.

Please keep me in your good thoughts and prayers. It really means a lot.

  • Alex, please try Fendendazole as an alternative drug to chemo. Fenbendazole is used in some dog dewormers, such as Panacur, and has been proven to inhibit cancer growth for some forms of cancer. My brother had an aggressive stage IV prostate cancer and is now cancer free. Please try it and see if can help you. It is harmless to humans and can be purchased from pet supply stores. Try googling it for more information.

  • Alex- I have bladder cancer, which is more rare in women. The chemo would kill me quicker and surgical removal is out of the question- I went through the original 6 weeks of immunotherapy ( tuberculosis culture). I stayed the course but not for the full time each treatment. After treatment it is too painful to walk. I have let them know that I choose to enjoy life as much as I am able rather than spending the rest of my life trying to buy more time by continuing to the next set of treatments. I've had many people tell me that I seem so upbeat considering the prognosis. My answer is, something will take each of us. At least l have some time to be prepared for those last days. My doctor has suggested hospice. I will consider that at a more appropriate time..right now I'm only interested in feeling the best I can feel from one day to the next.

  • Hello, Here are some things I have learned that may help regarding cancer: Take Liposomal Vitamin C Calcium bentonite clay Polygonum Cuspidatum- I have learned that this is good for pancreatic cancer. Here is an article about it: "Antitumor Research of the active ingredients from traditional chinese medical plant polygonum cuspidatum, by Xinnan Wu, Qi Li, and Qing Ji. Also look into Thymoquinone, an herbal medicine I just read about from " Science Daily". Eat lots of cruciferous vegetables (look into bok choy) Pineapples Oregano Oil Kefir Go to the website Please look for more natural remedies to heal, very, very important. Most importantly, take care of your spirit. Continue to go to God in prayer. King Jesus will be returning soon for the second time! When you get a chance, visit the Church of Christ that is closest to you or go to Here is the Plan of Salvation Hear: Romans 10:17 "Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God." Believe: Mark 16:16 "Believe in Christ: he who believeth and is baptized shall be saved. But he who believeth not shall be damned." Repent: Luke 13:3 " I tell ye nay: but except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish." Confess: Matthew 10:32 "Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in Heaven." Be Baptized: Acts 2:38 And Peter said unto them, "Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit." Stay in the light, stay in the spirit as much as possible, and stay away from negativity. I hope this helps. But most importantly, learn about the Church of Christ before Jesus comes back.

  • Alex, you are a courageous and humble man, and I admire you very much. I've been watching you since I was a kid and always keep track of how many I get right (and yes, I always answer in the form of a question). I've always wanted to be a contestant, but unfortunately I know nothing of Shakespeare, sports, or politics. You're in my family's prayers. This world will not be the same without you; probably a little dumber.

  • Good to see that you seem quite well. My mom got the same diagnose, just 1 week before you announced it, thats why I was cheering up for you as well. Unfortunately my moms past 1.5 months went downhill a lot and therefore she didnt survive it and passed away 1 month ago. My prayers are with you Alex, really, I know its a very hard situation, but never lose hope and fight, my mom did so and I am proud of her forever. Please survive and show this cancer that he cant end lives always! With Gods help you need to get through this!

  • If I could’ve exuded a FRACTION of this grace and positivity when I was diagnosed with bone cancer I’d look back now and be proud. Instead I was a raging, sobbing lunatic. Mr. Trebek, you are truly an inspiration. For many reasons.

  • Try taking colloidal silver. A lot of people are taking it to treat cancer and have had good results. Also look up the hallelujah diet online. Many have had good results with that as well.
