    I have met Alex Trebek a couple of times (his kids went to the same school as did my sister's kids) and I can tell you that he is a very nice person and very "down-to-Earth". My mother died of Pancreatic cancer. The doctors gave her six months and she died in four months. I would love to see Alex beat the cancer, but it won't be easy.

    Don't look now, but Ruth Bader Ginsburg beat cancer, again. Pancreatic cancer for the 2nd time, no less.

    If you have the money and facilities to throw at it, cancer is much more beatable than it was just 5 years ago.

    He is such a great guy, and of course his feuds with Sean Connery are the stuff of legend.

    May be true for certain cancers, but definitely not all. Gliobastoma, esophageal, ovarian, pancreatic are still killers.

    My closest climbing partner and best man at my first marriage in 1998 was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer a year ago. Stage 1, found on a CT scan done for other reasons, so found early. But stage 1 pancreatic cancer still has only.a 20% five year survival rate.

    I just saw on a new feed this morning that Alex is back to film new Jeopardy episodes. He seems optimistic, although he is far from being given a clean bill of health. Hope to see the "Canadian ponce" (spoken with a Sean Connery accent) back and fighting.

    The Huntsman Cancer Center in Salt Lake City recently announced it had cured early stage pancreatic cancer in mice. Trouble is it is notoriously symptom free.

    I have been watching the Tournament of Champions. It is incredible the things these people know.. and don't know.. just today, I knew four answers that none of the three contestants knew... of course they knew a lot more that I did not have a clue.
