The sensational anchor credited her with a sweet shoutout to her. He said:

Jeannie is wonderful. She cried, of course, this morning when she got the news [about shrinking tumors]. But it’s been a lot. It’s a lot of pressure.

 Mr. Trebek also appreciated the efforts of all caregivers. He mentioned their compassionate work as:

My heart goes out to caregivers. Because they have to deal with their loved ones suffering and they also don’t always know how to help.

His only regret in life 

Only one desire resides in Alex's heart that perishes him. He and Jean have been married for more than 29 years. But, even this long period seems short to him. He wishes to have met her earlier in his 20s. It's still pretty good though. They have two kids together; Mathew and Emily.

Don't we just love it when the true chemistry between works so well? Jean's unwavering support has done wonders for her husband. Share this and keep praying for the restoration of his health.
