Cancer never comes at a good time. For Ethan, in his early thirties and having just won Survivor and started a global non-profit organization, cancer unpacked its bags when he was just beginning his adult life. It was like life tossing his a heavy, slippery, pungent ball and saying, “Stop everything you’re doing and carry this around now.” 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, a group often overlooked and dismissed. He has served as spokesperson for numerous organizations fighting for cancer, including Stand Up to Cancer (SU2C), Livestrong, Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation, Movember, First Descents and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. His journey has been profiled by People Magazine, The Huffington Post, the Today Show, and 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 challenges.
