Pancreatic cancer killed my dad. Pancreatic cancer killed my brother-in-law. Pancreatic cancer killed my friends' mom/mother-in-law. I can't say I have high hopes for Mr. Trebek, but I do hope I am wrong.

Hoping they’ll make Will Farrell his backup.

That sucks. Wish the best for him. He has an uphill battle...

I was really impressed by his interview with Harvey on "Objectified". If you haven't seen that one, you really should.

Took my FIL too.

Stage 4 PC is just not good at all, likely metastasized beyond control.

I did see it and it was very good. I'm not a huge Harvey Levin fan, but the show is pretty good. I've also seen Marc Cuban and Jaclyn Smith.

My Dad had it but was caught very very early and is still with us today, many years later. If you have to have / get cancer, pancreatic cancer isn't a good one to get and stage 4 obviously is the worst. Unless his Drs. restage his condition, he has a very uphill battle.

Took my FIL 2 years ago this coming May. We are still recovering.

We also have VIP passes to a taping...cashing those in ASAP.

Wishing Mr. Trebek the best, but the odds are not with him.
