Alex Trebek

Alex Trebek has had two heart attacks, survived brain surgery for blood clots, lived through an automobile accident and now is fighting a deadly and painful cancer, pancreatic.

Last year, he was sighted in his office so sick from chemotherapy that he was on the floor sobbing in pain.  And yet he refused to cancel the marathon tapings of “Jeopardy!”.

Announcer Johnny Gilbert is quoted as saying “Once I introduce him on that stage, he is Alex Trebek.  You can tell that that’s what he’s living for.”

What are we living for?  What makes us work through pain, disappointment and anxiety to overcome adversity.  Alex Trebek is putting on a real time clinic.
