Alex Trebek has been amazingly positive and strong throughout his battle with cancer.

Back in March, the longtime Jeopardy! host opened up to fans, revealing he had been diagnosed with stage four pancreatic cancer, pledging to “beat the low survival rate statistics” with aggressive treatment.

Trebek has continued working throughout his treatment, giving periodic updates about his health with nothing but grace and good humor. Truly inspiring.
