Ethan Zohn is getting hitched!

The Survivor winner is ready to take on a new adventure and that is marrying New York City interior designer Lisa Heywood, a rep for Zohn confirms to E! News. Zohn, 41, and Heywood, 47, met at a Clinton Global Initiative charity event.

"This is the reason I survived cancer meet Lisa and start a beautiful and healthy new life together," said Zohn, who diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphona in 2009. The reality TV alum is now cancer free thanks to a stem cell transplant from his brother in 2013.

"Today I leap into a healthy new body. Today is the start of the rest of my life. Thank You to my bro Lee & all who have supported me. Love!" the reality star tweeted at the time of his transfusion.

The happy couple dated for two years before Zohn proposed on the dock of their new lake house in New Hampshire. According to People, Heywood's gorgeous engagement ring holds special meaning to her fiancé, as it is the stone from the ring his father, who died from cancer when he was just 14, gave to his mother. He had the diamond placed in a new setting that he designed himself.

Prior to meeting Heywood, Zohn was linked to fellow Survivor alum Jenna Morasca, whom he dated for 10 years.

Congratulations to the happy couple!
