“Survivor” star Ethan Zohn is on his way to being a different kind of survivor.
The winner of “Survivor: Africa” has received holiday cheer in the form of a clear cancer screening, according to PEOPLE.com.
After five weeks of radiation treatment, the strapping 36-year-old recently received word that his body has no active cancer cells.
“This is the best possible news I could have gotten at this stage of my journey,” Zohn says in a PEOPLE.com article.
He thanked his fans for their support and prayers.
Zohn, who won the hit reality show’s third season, was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma in April.
Despite the great news, his battle is not over. Doctors are still planning to preform a stem-cell transplant operation.
