Ethan Zohn gets news that he is cancer-free



Tbd-ethanzohn121809 Here's some good news for the holidays: It looks like 2002's Survivor: Africa winner, Ethan Zohn, will get to spend Christmas without cancer. See, Virginia, there really is a Santa Claus.

"My PET scan is negative so after chemotherapy didn't work, chemotherapy didn't work, 25 radiation blasts ... now, PET scan is negative, which means the cancer is in remission and which means I can start this next step, which is hopefully a stem cell transplant, but it's one of the best feelings in the world," Zohn said in a video on, in which he calls and tells his mother the news.

Zohn was diagnosed with a rare form of Hodgkin's disease in May and has been fighting it ever since. There's a link to his teary phone call to mom below.

"Everyone's been thinking about me and praying for me and I just thank everyone for everything they've done," Zohn says in the video. Even The Juice* can't wish cancer on anyone, so congrats, Ethan.
