Before "Jeopary" aired last night, Alex Trebek took the time to thank his fans for their show of support after his diagnosis of Stage Four Pancreatic Cancer saying, " I won’t be able to respond to all of you individually, but I do want you to know that I do read everything I receive. And I am thankful for the kind words, the prayers and the advice you have offered, and I’m extremely touched by the warmth you have expressed in your comments to me. I’m a lucky guy.”
