My next door neighbor died of this. He went from a very fit nearing retirement ex fireman to a shambling old man after a chemo treatment, Then he was bedridden for about 2 years.

My dad was "lucky" he got a pain in his lower back one morning and five hours later he was sedated in hospital with pancreatitis and didn't know any more about it.

I'll be surprised if he makes it to the end of the year

I watched his message, and I just want to cry. I am not one to get attached to celebrities and feel anything more than a slight sadness that they’re gone, but jeopardy has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. So many after dinner unwinding with my husband, and throughout my childhoold. It’s iconic, and how can you not love Alex trebek?

I do get attached to celebrities. We watch them on tv for many years and they somehow become part of the family. Like with Luke Perry dying, I feel like I lost a really cool friend from high school.

Trebek has been on Jeopardy for as long as I have memories of watching TV. Jeopardy has been one of my favorite shows starting with being on my grandmothers knee watching it in the mid 80s. I have tons of memories wrapped up around that show.

Old times talk about the reassurance of having a constant news anchor, I hear about Cronkite specifically. With the lack of prevalence with nightly network news shows, Trebek and to a smaller extent Sajak, has effectively filled this role for me.

Every night, without fail, Trebek is there hosting bar trivia. I'm gonna cry when we lose him. It will never be the same.

Yeah I cried watching his video. Jeopardy is a staple in my parents' house, and I'll never forget playing with a long-distance friend over AIM ages ago (we kept score and bet dinner and I've still, unsurprisingly, never beaten him). Mom and I still text each other our Final guesses every night.

The video was very sad. I liked his attitude though - "I have to beat it because I have 3 years left on my contact".
