Alex Trebek says cancer treatment may mean his retirement from 'Jeopardy!'

Alex Trebek says his pancreatic cancer may mean the end of his time at ‘Jeopardy!’	 	 	 			Alex Trebek has shared a hopeful health update

"If [death] happens, why should I be afraid [of] that?" "I'm 79 years old, so I have lived a good life, a full life and I'm nearing the end of that life".

"When I feel that my skills have diminished to the point that I notice and am bothered by it - I notice now, but I am not as bothered by it because all the people around me are saying, 'No, it's OK, '" he said. "I don't know if I'm strong enough or intelligent enough to help alleviate some of that despair, so it's tough on me". "We'll play it by ear and keep chugging along until we either win or lose".

Since Trebek was first diagnosed in March, the game show host has become a spokesperson for pancreatic cancer, and he realizes the responsibility that comes with that when talking to others who are sick.

"I'm not afraid of dying", Trebek told CTV News.

"It's kind of mind-boggling", Trebek said then.

The Mayo Clinic says pancreatic cancer generally "spreads rapidly to nearby organs".

The long-time game-show host spoke to LaFlamme before an appearance on Friday at the University of Ottawa, where they announced that Trebek would be donating $2.1 million for the Alex Trebek Forum for Dialogue, which seeks to "enrich and broaden public debate" - something that he feels is at risk in certain parts of the world.

"Now normally the prognosis for this is not very encouraging, but I'm going to fight this and I'm going to keep working", he revealed at the time.

Alex Trebek poses in the press room at the 46th annual Daytime Emmy Awards at the Pasadena Civic Center in Pasadena, Calif., on May 5, 2019.

Trebek spoke with CTV News Friday where he revealed that his chemotherapy treatment is causing sores in his mouth that are making it hard for him to enunciate his speech. I'm hanging in. So we're back on the chemo and we'll see if the numbers go down.

He says he would only continue doing the show so long as his condition did not get in the way.

"But", he added, "there will come a point when they (fans and producers) will no longer be able to say, 'It's OK'".
