Less than three months after Alex Trebek revealed a bleak medical diagnosis, things are looking so much better.

Alex Trebek says he is in "near remission", almost three months after announcing he been diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer. The 78-year-old has been open about what he's been going through, previously detailing how he's "writhed in pain and cried in pain" while he's been on set filming.

"It's kind of mind-boggling", Trebek told People.

While Trebek's prognosis is good given the cancer's reported nine percent survival rate, he notes that he's still got several more hard rounds of chemotherapy before he's in full remission.

And while the cancer and the chemo have been hard, Trebek said the good wishes of "a couple million people" have been incredibly helpful.

In early March, Trebek made the shocking cancer announcement in a video posted to social media. "But they were tears of joy, not tears of depression", Trebek shared. "I told the doctors, 'This has to be more than just the chemo'".

Trebek still has several more rounds of chemotherapy to hopefully enter full remission.

He went on to thank all the people who had reached out to him offering their support and expressed his gratitude over being "considered an inspiration to other people". For those who need a refresher, the form of pancreatic cancer that Alex is battling has a nine percent survival rate. "I've got another chemo next week and we'll do a review and see where things stand", he said.

"People all over America have been sharing the good thoughts, their advice, their prayers, and I feel that it is making a difference in my well-being", he said.
