Alex Trebek's cancer grows, ’I'm nearing the end of my life'

Jeopardy! host and pop culture icon Alex Trebek has announced that he's nearing the end of his life, but he wants the world to know he's not afraid.

He told Canadian news anchor Lisa La Flamme, “I’ve lived a full life, a good life, and I’m nearing the end of that life. I know that. I’m not gonna delude myself. If it happens, it happens. Why should I be afraid of that?”
