Alex Trebek is coming to terms with his illness and says that the side effects of his pancreatic cancer treatment could take him away from Jeopardy.
Just last month Trebek had to get more chemo treatment, and in an interview done last Friday, he admitted that he’s beginning to get mouth sores and in turn, his speech is being affected.
Trebek also says that the producers of the show are being very supportive of him, but he also knows that sooner or later a decision will have to be made.
Trebek has been the host of Jeopardy since 1984.
