Ethan Zohn gives the word survivor a whole new meaning. He is a former professional soccer player, winner of the hit reality television show Survivor Africa, co-founder of Grassroot Soccer and two-time cancer crusher. As demonstrated by his charitable work, volunteerism, and community involvement, Ethan believes that a better and healthier world can be achieved through education, advocacy and inspiration.
In April 2009, Ethan was diagnosed with a rare form of Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. After multiple rounds of chemotherapy and an autologous stem cell transplant, Ethan learned that his cancer had returned. Thanks to the dedication of a team of doctors and nurses, Ethan underwent a course of experimental treatment and received a second stem cell transplant in 2011, this time from his brother. Today he is in remission and thriving in life.
Ethan serves as a National Ambassador for Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C), The LIVESTRONG Foundation, Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation and The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and Be The Match. He speaks around the world on his personal battle with cancer and the various issues he and others face when they hear the words “You Have Cancer.”
