As he continues three months of intense chemotherapy to fight a rare form of Hodgkin's Lymphoma, Survivor: Africa winner Ethan Zohn is opening up about the medication he needs to keep going.

In an exclusive video blog for People.com, Zohn – accompanied by his girlfriend Survivor: The Amazon winner Jenna Morasca – shows off the array of prescription pills required to counter the effects of his cancer treatment.

"The chemotherapy knocks me down, so I've gotta take all this stuff to boost me back up," Zohn says, as he talks about his new daily rituals.

In April, after suffering months of undiagnosed itching and night-sweats, Zohn, 35, was diagnosed with Hodgkin's disease. In May, doctors discovered he was suffering from a rare form of the cancer called CD20-positive Hodgkin's Lymphoma. The shaggy-haired soccer player and founder of AIDS charity Grassroot Soccer then chopped off his curly locks in anticipation of losing his hair to chemo.

Vowing to stay upbeat and inspire others, Zohn is now taping weekly video blogs for PEOPLE.
