Television personality Ethan Zohn is a survivor in every sense of the word.

Seven years after winning Survivor: Africa in 2002, Ethan was diagnosed with Hodgekin's lymphoma, a rare form of cancer that he believed he beat in 2010.

Unfortunately, Ethan announced in September that the cancer had returned.

This news made Ethan's participation in the New York City Marathon this Sunday even more emotional.

Ethan ran to support SOYJOY Supports Ethan John and Grassroot Soccer, an organization Ethan co-founded to fight HIV/AIDS.

The reality star, who also ran with his wife Jenna Morasca, finished the 26.2 mile race with a time of 4:20:46.
