Although he’s near remission, Trebek is not completely out of the woods yet. He’ll still have to go through several more rounds of chemotherapy to get into full remission but he’s more than happy about the news, bringing him to the point of tears.
“But they were tears of joy, not tears of depression,” he says.“I’ve got a couple million people out there who have expressed their good thoughts, their positive energy directed towards me and their prayers. I told the doctors, this has to be more than just the chemo, and they agreed it could very well be an important part of this.
