ESPN soccer reporter and AIDS activist Ethan Zohn is a Survivor, without question. The reality-TV star -- who won CBS' Survivor: Africa (the series' 2001-'02 season) -- is currently in remission from a rare form of Hodgkin's Disease. The good news comes almost a year after Zohn, 36, received the diagnosis, according to People.
Zohn's girlfriend, fellow Survivor champ Jenna Morasca, confirmed to People: "A few weeks ago, we got his first clean CT scan. Now we can officially call him 'in remission'. We were so nervous for this test because good news on this test meant we could start our lives again."
Zohn, who had to endure a stem cell transplant (which Morasca called "a long and daunting process") after his cancer came back, was finally told in April that his disease was now in remission. The first thing the overjoyed couple did when they found out the news? That's right, a trip to Walt Disney World!
It seems that Zohn is more than ready to face his future with gusto. Morasca, 29, told fans, "Ethan says he is just excited to start living again and enjoying every precious moment. We wanted to come out of this stronger people with more appreciation for each other and the world, and that's exactly what happened."
Zohn, a Massachusetts native, will soon begin filming a new series called Outside Today, and will reportedly continue to work with the charity he founded, Grassroot Soccer -- a foundation that uses "the power of soccer in the fight against HIV and AIDS."
