Alex Trebek is using his fight against pancreatic cancer to raise awareness to the disease and to encourage people to look out for the early warning signs.
The Jeopardy host teamed up with the World Pancreatic Cancer Coalition to launch a new public service announcement. In a video released Tuesday night, Trebek says, “I wished I had known sooner that the persistent stomach pain I experienced before my diagnosis was a symptom of pancreatic cancer." He continued to list "mid-back pain, unexplained weight loss and the yellowing of the skin or eyes" as other common symptoms."
Trebek also asked everyone to wear purple on November 21st for World Pancreatic Cancer Day.
