You may have seen the Public Service Announcements featuring a slew of former Survivor contestants including Rupert Boneham, Colby Donaldson and “Boston Rob” Mariano.Â That’s because a team of Survivors have joined in a big campaign to battle a devastating disease that has touched every family in some capacity — cancer.Â A few weeks back, CBS announced that Survivor: Africa winner Ethan Zohn would be their spokesperson for the Survivor team representing Stand Up To Cancer.Â Now, you Survivor fans can help raise some money for the cause by opening your wallet and buying a special-edition buff.
Earlier this year, a special 10-year anniversary buff was released featuring every logo between season one and season 20.Â Now, an exclusive buff only found on CBSStore.com has been created to help raise funding for cancer research.
The red, yellow and orange buff for Survivor: Stand Up To Cancer features the universal Survivor logo alongside the arrows and images representing the Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C) organization.Â The online store is selling the buffs for $22 (before tax and shipping charges) with proceeds from each purchase benefiting cancer research through SU2C.
Ethan was chosen to represent the organization on Survivor‘s behalf having recently overcame Hodgkin’s lymphoma.Â Survivor creator/executive producer Mark Burnett is proud to be a part of the cause.Â “My father is a cancer survivor and my mother died of cancer so this cause is very important to me,” he said in a press release. Â “I’m proud of CBS and the Survivor family for making this happen with SU2C.”
