Ethan Zohn: 'I'm Going To Outrun Cancer'

Ethan Zohn has been through a lot: winning "Survivor 3: Africa," dribbling a soccer ball from Boston to Washington, D.C., experiencing a torn ACL, and receiving two cancer diagnoses. Others may have given in, but Zohn has found a way to rise above these challenges -- by just moving forward.

After his second diagnosis this past September, his doctors warned him he probably shouldn't run the upcoming New York City marathon, but his heart was set on the race. "I'm going to outrun cancer," Zohn told AOL's You've Got. "I'm in charge here, not you, cancer."
