Alex Trebek’s wife, Jean, and their children Emily, Nicky, and Matthew, all attended the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network’s (PanCAN) Purple Stride Walk & Run at the Los Angeles Zoo to help the organization raise money to help others fight the disease, according to People. Jean told the outlet, “It’s a little bittersweet because this was the disease that took Alex’s human life. But, I also know what it pulled from him.” She went on to sing his praises, explaining, “His courage, his strength and that was what Alex, I know, wants to be remembered for.”

According to the PanCAN website, more than 62,000 Americans will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer this year. The devastating disease has also been the cause of death for other well-known and beloved figures, including Steve Jobs, Aretha Franklin, and Ruth Bader Ginsberg, according to WebMD. Hopefully, the Trebek family’s support, as well as the work of so many others, can help find a cure some day. We think the “Jeopardy!” host would be proud.
