Fans of longtime "Jeopardy!" host Alex Trebek have been sending messages of love and support since the star revealed he was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer earlier this year.

Dhruv Gaur, the 2018 college champion, wrote "What is we [heart] you Alex" as his answer.

Instead of writing in his question, the Tournament of Champions contestant wrote: 'We love you, Alex!'

"That's very kind, thank you", Trebek said, while the emotion of the moment overtook him.

When Trebek saw that Gaur gave up almost all of his remaining $2,000 on the incorrect answer. Trebek, who had recently told the contestants that he was reentering treatment for pancreatic cancer, was visibly touched by this gesture. Despite the physical toll the disease and treatment has taken on him, Trebek, 79, has continued to host the show that's brought him inside living rooms across the world for 35 years.

Trebek made the announcement to the public in September after a short period of optimism during which he stopped chemotherapy.

"I'm simply very grateful I acquired the chance to say what I do know everybody was considering". In an interview with CTV News, Trebek said that he would continue hosting the show "as long as my skills do not diminish".

As for Gaur, despite going down to $5 in Final Jeopardy, he still walked away with $10,000 for finishing in the semi-final top nine out of 15.

"I was inspired to give by Alex Trebek, the host of Jeopardy! and someone who I have looked up to my whole life", he said.
