Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek has shared a hopeful health update about his battle with pancreatic cancer.
The 78 year old said he is in near remission as his body has been responding to the treatment positively and some of the tumors have already shrunk by more than 50 per cent.
The survival rate for those with this kind of cancer is nine per cent.
Trebek announced in March that he had been diagnosed with stage four pancreatic cancer.
