"It's great to be considered an inspiration to other people," Trebek said. "People all over America have been sharing their good thoughts, their advice, their prayers. I feel it is making a difference in my well-being.”

"I've had so many contacts from people who have survived cancer for 10 years, 12 years, 14 years. I am now a 30-day cancer survivor. I'm gonna catch up to those other people."

He said the positive thoughts have made a good difference in his journey, according to USA Today.
