Alex Trebek gave us an update on his condition one year after being diagnosed with Stage 4 pancreatic cancer.

In the video, Trebek said that he part of the 18 percent of patients to survive a full year after diagnosis.

Trebek also said, "My oncologist tried to cheer me up the other day ... He was certain that one year from now, the two of us would be sitting in his office celebrating my second anniversary of survival. If we take it just one day at a time, with a positive attitude, anything is possible."

The Jeopardy host continued saying, "Now I'd be lying if I said the journey had been an easy one. There were some good days, but a lot of not so good days. I joked with friends that the cancer won't kill me, the chemo treatments will."
