Doctors are rushing Alex Trebek in for an unexpected round of chemotherapy … because his battle with pancreatic cancer has taken a turn for the worse.
The beloved "Jeopardy!" host announced Tuesday morning, "This past summer we thought I was finished with chemo. That was a bit premature and certainly overly optimistic." He says he started immunotherapy … but it didn't work.
As Alex put it, under immunotherapy … his "numbers went south, dramatically and quickly."
He says he's going back in for another round of chemo, and as he's done ever since announcing his diagnosis … he's keeping his amazingly positive outlook.
Alex smiled as he said the chemo "worked very well the first time! So, we're expecting good results again."
