Ethan Zohn, who won Survivor: Africa in 2002, is now facing an even bigger challenge.

People magazine reports that the curly-maned soccer player has been diagnosed with stage two Hodgkin's disease, after doctors discovered a swollen lymph node under his left clavicle and a mass on the left side of his chest.

Zohn has a rare form of the disease known as CD20-positive Hodgkin's Lymphoma, and began chemotherapy treatment in New York last Friday.

"This is the ultimate game of Survivor," says Zohn, 35, "and there's really only one outcome, and that's to win. There's no other option."

Zohn, whose father died of colon cancer when Ethan was 14, hopes to use his battle with the disease to educate ad inspire the public.

"This is happening for a reason," Zohn notes. "You have to get spiritual about this [stuff]. I know I want to help people and inspire people. That's my purpose in life. So I need to use this as a platform."

Best wishes for a speedy recovery.

    okay so, shes gorgeous and shes not going in any wrong direction. I know she looks and acts just older then she is. but thats because shes mature and i totally love her. so you should get off her back and let the girl live! from what i've heard she isnt out doing drugs. so.. there's nothing wrong with dressing up and wearing what you feel nice in.

    .Even in the U.S. medical scientific research did not find anything against the proliferation of cells of the body humain.Both sides in the world associations benefactor of struggle against this disease have significantly decreased their efforts.There is not fundraising for several years.In some countries even the funds were diverted for personal interests.
