November is Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month. Stand Up To Cancer and the Trebek family have launched The Alex Trebek Fund to accelerate critical research with the goal of better treating pancreatic cancer, which has the highest mortality rate of all major cancers. With over $1 million in contributions already raised through a generous donation from the Trebek family, and the Estate of Barbara Hanania, the fund honors the late beloved Jeopardy! host, who tragically lost his battle with pancreatic cancer in 2020. We are grateful to Nick Monsma, a lifelong friend of Barbara who brought her estate gift to us.
Having made his American television debut in 1973, Trebek began hosting Jeopardy! in 1984 and went on to host the syndicated show for more than 36 years. As a beloved national icon, who was watched in more than 20 million homes across America each week, Trebek will have a lasting impact through this collaborative fund.
Join us in honoring and commemorating Alex by watching the video below and donating in his memory.
Help us reach $250,000 in support of The Alex Trebek Fund so that we can help fund the scientists working tirelessly to fight this difficult disease.
