NBC Today Show - September 2019
The legendary host's return for the newest season of "Jeopardy!" comes six months after he was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer. After letting fans know of his diagnosis in March, he remained upbeat and optimistic, saying "now normally, the prognosis for this is not very encouraging, but I’m going to fight this, and I’m going to keep working."
In the Today Show clip, Cancer and Careers' Executive Director, Rebecca Nellis, adds "it helps all of us learn that working through cancer is possible, that you can continue to be that contributing member of your team, of your workplace, in Alex Trebek's case, this public figure on our televisions every evening that cancer didn't change that or diminish that it was just something that he had to go through."
