George Alexander Trebek is a Canadian-American television personality. He has been the host of the syndicated game show Jeopardy! Reports have come in from the video that you will see below that he’s got but a few days left to live, and it’s shocking to hear. While I’ve known of him being sick for a while now (since he announced it) you’re never sure how long someone has until it’s done, and it’s announced so the fact that know it’s only a few days is sad, and shocking they’re revealing this information. He’s always been a classy person full of life, and he’s been in our homes entertaining us for decades.
since its revival in 1984, and has also hosted a number of other game shows, including The Wizard of Odds, Double Dare, High Rollers, Battlestars, Classic Concentration, and To Tell the Truth. Trebek is contracted to host Jeopardy! until 2022. Trebek has also made appearances in numerous television series, in which he usually played himself. A native of Canada, he became a naturalized American citizen in 1998. Now take this video with a grain of salt as I need to dig a bit deeper into this but it was something I thought I could post, and report on. I hope it’s not true, and he gets better but here is the video, and if I find out more I’ll update the site ASAP to keep you posted.
When someone this known dies it’s like losing a family member, and out of my 41 years of life he’s been on 36 years of them steady on tv. I’ve ALWAYS known who he is, and I was floored when I heard he was ill with cancer I’ve had cancer touch my life several times over my life… In the 90s I lost a close friend “Esteban” who worked with me for years at a local movie theater, and he got brain cancer, left his fiancee, and kid who was just born a year before he died. That was the worst experience I had with that evil illness until my father in the 00’s came down with stage 2 colon cancer, and needed to have a major emergency surgery to remove a baseball size tumor from his colon.
He was very lucky, and survived, and has been well since, and I thought I would never have to deal with it again until my mother became ill with Lung cancer, and passed away in 2016 which not only was the most devastating experience of my life it’s one I’ll never get over.
My mother, and I were very close and I cry from time to time missing her, and I know it’s just something you never get over so cancer has no race hate, it’s not biased, and doesn’t care where you’re from in this little world we’re in. When it’s going to take your life there is nothing you can do about it… We must do more to help bring a cure forward that the FDA allows to replace the horrors of chemo, and actually has a better success rate, and I do believe it’s there. Just I sometimes believe they want us living with these things, and not actually cure people.
With that said my deepest condolences to Alex Trebek, and his family… And from someone who feels like he’s a member of my family I will miss watching him on a show I’m actually a long time fan off. I’ll update this post when the horrible news drops of his passing so keep tabs on the site as I get more info on his condition.
