NEW YORK — “Survivor” champ Ethan Zohn has cancer. Zohn, who outlasted the competition to win “Survivor: Africa” in 2002, is undergoing chemotherapy for a rare form of Hodgkin’s disease. A spokeswoman for the CBS series, Lori DelliColli, confirmed Zohn’s condition. The news was first reported by People magazine. The former pro soccer player, known for his curly mop of hair, was diagnosed with stage-two Hodgkin’s disease in late April, when a swollen lymph node was discovered beneath his collar bone and a mass located on the left side of his chest. Then, last week, he began chemo treatments after being diagnosed with a less common type of the cancer that forms in the body’s lymph system.

B says. “I am actually a big fan of Ethan specially during the Survivor days. I just can’t believe this sad news. Hodgkins has got higher chances of being cured compare to other lymphoma diseases. With proper treatment, a healthy young person like him can definitely overcome this. I wish him full recovery.”

The term “diagnosed” is just not my cup of tea.
