Alex Trebek got emotional after a 'Jeopardy' contestant answered with a heartfelt message

By

Alex Trebek, the long-time host of Jeopardy!, revealed that he had been diagnosed with stage four pancreatic cancer earlier this year. He's been publicly fighting the disease ever since, appearing in awareness campaigns and keeping fans updated on his status. 

Fans and contestants seem to be fully behind Trebek, with the most recent example of support taking place during the final moments of Monday's show. During "Final Jeopardy," contestant Dhruv Gaur wrote an answer that got Trebek a little choked up.
