Jeopardy host Alex Trebek is sharing a 'mind blowing' cancer update.

In a recent interview the game show host who was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer, revealed that he is 'near remission'.

Alex said that "it is kind of mind -boggling[',  While talking to People he said 'the Doctors said they hadn't seen this kind of positive result in their memory'.

Trebek knows that is amazing, the American Cancer Society says of the thousands of people who will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer this year the five year survival rate is about 9 percent.

The much - beloved game show host is in the midst of chemotherapy treatments , but cried tears of joy when he found out how well he has been responding to the treatments.   That and a whole lot of prayers seem to be working.  "Alex, I'll take a cure for $200.00"
