Survivor: Ethan Zohn Continues His Fight Against Cancer

September 16, 2009 11:14 AM by Britteny Elrick


Ethan Zohn, winner of Survivor: Africa, was on the road to recovery after being diagnosed with Hodgkin’s disease last April.  He endured three months of chemotherapy, which resulted in Ethan feeling positive and able to resume his normal life.  Unfortunately, things have taken a turn for the worse…

“I was off chemo,” he told PEOPLE. “I was running up to seven miles. I was happy, I was going out. I went up to Boston to see the family and was feeling great.”

Unfortunately, he recently received some bad news from his doctor regarding his CAT scan. “My cancer is back. I have never been so scared in my life, for my life.”  “It was a complete punch in the face,” he continued.  “My mom was obviously upset. My brothers – everyone’s upset. They can’t believe it’s what’s happening. But on the flip side, everyone’s positive and supportive.”

But regardless of what comes his way, the soccer player remains positive. “You have to think positive. And you have to find the strength, which I will. And you have to rely on other people, which I will,” he said.
