Survivor Winner and Vassar Grad Has Cancer

Sad news. Ethan Zohn '96, the winner of Survivor: Africa, has been diagnosed with cancer.

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

Both of Ethan's parents died of cancer, but the type that Ethan is fighting has a survival rate as high as 90%.

Ethan returned to Vassar in 2005 to speak about his charity work.
