Ethan Zohn: A Survivor in More Ways Than One

June 11, 2020

On this week’s episode of the “CURE Talks Cancer” podcast, we spoke with “Survivor: Africa” winner Ethan Zohn on his journey with cancer and advocating for lymphoma awareness.

After experiencing what he described as “debilitatingly itchy skin” in 2009, former professional soccer player and “Survivor: Africa” winner Ethan Zohn went from winning the ultimate prize on the popular reality show to taking on a rare form of Hodgkin lymphoma not once, but twice. But thanks to a regimen of intense treatments and two stem cell transplants from his brother, Zohn was declared cancer-free in 2013 and went on to return to the 40th season of “Survivor” earlier this year in the Winners At War competition.

This week, we’re talking with Zohn about how his time on “Survivor” helped him take on cancer multiple times — and about how he never lets a crisis go to waste.
