Alex Trebek - Pancreatic Cancer
Updated: Aug 8, 2020
"Jeopardy" game show host Alex Trebek discovered in March 2019 that he had stage 4 pancreatic cancer, the same illness that struck Steve Jobs, Patrick Swayze and Ruth Bader Ginsburg, to name a few well known people. He has handled the situation with the heart of a hero, and it has been a grueling process. There has been tremendous pain, fatigue, sadness and disappointment after having short-lived evidence that the disease had gone into remission. He has been very public in his disclosures about his condition, and he's staring it down in the most unflinching manner.
DR. JORDAN WINTER brings his expertise to the subject of pancreatic cancer. He is the Chief of Surgical Oncology at University Hospitals in Cleveland, Ohio and he's the Director of Surgical Services at the Seidman Cancer Center. His clinical interest lies with the management of pancreatic and related cancers, and he has been a principal investigator on multiple clinical trials.
