Alex Trebek, the long time host of “Jeopardy!” announced in March that he was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer.

Almost 2 months later, Alex is back with a very good update! The 78-year-old TV personality tells People magazine he’s responding very well to chemotherapy and the doctors have told him “they hadn’t seen this kind of positive results in their memory.” Trebek says some of the tumors have shrunk by more than 50 percent.

According to the American Cancer Society, 3% of parents will stage 4 pancreatic cancer live for 5 years after being diagnosed.
