Ethan Zohn Recovered And Back At Work With Grassroots Soccer

Survivor Africa winner and one of the show most popular players ever; Ethan Zohn is back at work with his Grassroots Soccer charity in the continent where he won a million dollars almost ten long years ago. Zohn, who recently found out he is in remission from blood cancer; is once again leading the way in a fight against HIV/AIDS in the part of the world where it is most prevalent. Currently working in South Africa, Ethan continues his quest to educate its citizens of the dangers in AIDS and to educate the masses in an effort to curb its spread.

It certainly has been a whirlwind last year and half for Zohn as he had a recurrence of cancer and with the help of girlfriend and Survivor Amazon winner Jenna Morasca, successfully undertook gene therapy to beat the disease. One of the true good guys of Survivor, Ethan stuck to his pledge to the jury in Africa to do good with the million dollars if he were lucky enough to win which of course he did. All in all, according to Zohn "everything couldn't be better."

My View: I love hearing stories about the good deeds this fine your man has continually undertaken since his Survivor debut. You always hear the standard BS from winners of reality shows when they say they will use the money for charity or to do something positive for the community. 99 percent of the time these people use the money to buy houses and cars whereas Ethan Zohn used every last penny he had to develop and grow his Grassroots Soccer charity. The fact that he beat cancer is even greater news. There is no doubt if he were healthy Ethan would have participated in Heroes VS Villains and hopefully in the future we will see him again.
