Survivor Winner Supports Cause While Battling Cancer

Ethan Zohn, winner of "Survivor: Africa" in 2002 is facing a different challenge as of late.

The reality celeb was diagnosed with a rare form of Hodgkin's Lymphoma in the spring of 2009 and is currently spending 30 days in isolation while undergoing a complete stem-cell transplant to rid his body of cancer, Tonic reports.

But Zohn, a philanthropist who used much of his Survivor winnings to start a nonprofit, is using his illness as a chance to encourage others to participate in Cycle For Survival. Zohn is actively promoting and plans to participate in the indoor team cycling fundraiser, which raises money for research on rare cancers.

You can watch Zohn's video or read the full story about his involvement with the nonprofit at

Teams will ride in NYC on January 31 and in Chicago on February 6. Not near either of those cities? You can register to ride on a satellite team or support the cause by making a donation.
