Canzer Crusher

When Ethan first heard those three words -- "you have cancer" -- He knew his life would never be the same. Doubt and fear unpacked their bags and wouldn't leave. He endured numerous rounds of chemotherapy, one relapse, and two separate bone marrow transplants. But through the struggle, Ethan found his voice as the megaphone for a generation of young adults with cancer. He has served as spokesperson for numerous organizations fighting for cancer, including Stand Up to Cancer (SU2C), Livestrong, Gabrielle's Angel Foundation, First Descents and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. His journey has been profiled by People Magazine, The Huffington Post, the Today Show, and many others. Today, Ethan is in remission and uses a unique blend of storytelling, motivational speaking and humor to write and speak about finding purpose in the face of life's most difficult challenges.


Ethan brings charm, positive energy and humor to the screen because that’s the way he lives off-screen. Add to that a long list of television credits, and Ethan is the perfect guy to host the night (or day) away. Conversant on topics from health to sports to pop culture with depth and dynamism, Ethan is ready to rock the mic.
