“Jeopardy” host Alex Trebek and the World Pancreatic Cancer Coalition (WPCC) is teaming up and using the show's global platform to help raise awareness about the risks and symptoms of pancreatic cancer.

The one-minute PSA released on Wednesday is intended to help the public learn more about the disease ahead of World Pancreatic Cancer Day on Nov. 21, MarketWatch reports.

“Pancreatic Cancer is the only major cancer with a five-year survival rate in the single digits,” Trebek said in the video.

Common symptoms of pancreatic cancer include:

  • Persistent stomach pain
  • Mid-back pain
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • New-onset diabetes
  • Yellowing of the skin or eyes

According to the American Cancer Society, the average lifetime risk of pancreatic cancer is about 1 in 64 with about 56,770 people being diagnosed this year.

Trebek announced that he was diagnosed with Stage 4 pancreatic cancer in March. In an interview with GMA in September, Trebek talked about how after he completed his first round of chemotherapy he was told he was in remission only to be sent back to undergo a second round of chemotherapy.

“I was doing so well. And my numbers went down to the equivalent of a normal human being who does not have pancreatic cancer. So we were all very optimistic. And they said, 'Good, we're gonna stop chemo, we'll start you on immunotherapy,'" he said to "GMA." "I lost about 12 pounds in a week. And my numbers went sky high, much higher than they were when I was first diagnosed. So, the doctors have decided that I have to undergo chemo again and that's what I'm doing.”

Even though Trebek is going through his second round of chemotherapy, he remains positive. He told CTV News earlier this month, “I’m not afraid of dying. I’ve lived a good life, a full life, and I’m nearing the end of that life … if it happens, why should I be afraid [of] that?”

Trebek is now asking the public to join him in this fight by wearing purple this November, spreading the word on social media and visiting WorldPancreaticCancerDay.org.
