Ethan Zohn is a survivor. In 2002, he won $1 million on the reality show, “Survivor: Africa.” In April 2009, Ethan was diagnosed with CD-20 Positive Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. The 37-year-old has since become “the megaphone” for the young adult generation battling cancer. His need to help others runs deep. Ethan founded Grassroot Soccer, a non-profit organization that trains professional soccer players to teach African children about HIV/AIDS prevention. He serves as a National Ambassador for “Stand Up 2 Cancer” and in 2010 spearheaded their “Reality Team Challenge.” As the captain for Team SURVIVOR, Ethan helped SU2C raise more than $100 million for cancer research. Ethan’s interest in giving back extends to his work with other charities including the Colon Cancer Alliance, The American Cancer Society, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, and Lance Armstrong’s LIVESTRONG Foundation. In November 2010, Ethan celebrated overcoming his cancer by running in the New York City Marathon, less than ten months after his stem cell transplant, and finished in just over four hours. Ethan is also a contributing columnist for the Huffington Post. Of his work with Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation, Ethan says, “To be an Angel Ambassador and to help fulfill Gabrielle’s mission of a cancer free world is such an honor. It is essential for all young adults touched by cancer to have an organization like Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation to help ensure we have a voice. As an Angel Ambassador and lymphoma survivor, I will do everything in my power to make sure no one else has to suffer from this horrible disease, like we did.” For more info, visit: www.ezohn.com.
