When he was first diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma last April 2008, Ethan Zohn fought a tough battle to remission and recovery. Sadly enough, the Survivor winner once again finds himself in that same battlefield as his cancer returned in September of this year.
Recalling how he managed to pull through his ordeal, the 37 yr old soccer player basked in the love and support of long time girlfriend Jenna Morasca. She was his rock. Zohn recalls how Jenna became the light in his life. The one who put the smiles and the laughter during those trying difficult days.
This time, at the New York City Marathon runners event, Zohn proudly shares that Jenna has chosen to push the stop button in her life to take care of him and be by his side. To be there in every doctor’s appointment, and stay up with him through all his sleepless and restless nights as he fights for another chance at life.
The once professional soccer player and advocate to the sport, never lost his boyish good looks and his zest for life. Although he admits to feelings of anger, frustration , sadness and of course ..fear. But in spite of his illness, he is determined to make the most out of his situation and take it as a great opportunity to use his crisis and help other people.
Zohn has undergone stem transplant and is now considering treatment with the drug SGN – 35 and at the same time considering another stem transplant from one of his brothers.
The man is battle ready . However though, marriage is something he says he isn’t quite ready for and surely has not heard wedding bells ringing at this time.
