"We're looking forward to bigger goals that don't involve cancer, like marriage," Morasca toldIn Touch Weekly, referencing how Zohn has been receiving chemotherapy treatments and plans to undergo a second stem-cell transplant after learning in September that his cancer had returned following 20 months in remission.
Zohn said he and Morasca -- who was the winner of Survivor: The Amazon and competed with Zohn during The Amazing Race's currently-airing nineteenth season -- haven't allowed his cancer relapse to break their spirits.
"We're the type of people who dwell on the negative for just a short time, then flip it around," the former Survivor: Africa winner and The Amazing Race contestant told In Touch. "I'm going to have to be a warrior!"
The couple explained how they do activities together such as finishing the New York City marathon and working out at New York's Warrior Fitness Boot Camp for bonding purposes.
"We do partner exercises and sweat together. It brings you closer. I have her back, and she has mine," Zohn said, adding that he is going to remain optimistic about his recovery and not take any time for granted.
"I'm focused on staying alive. I want to take advantage of every moment I have."
Although the couple hope to wed, Zohn and Morasca apparently aren't ready to welcome children into their lives.
"I would like to start with a dog!" Morasca said.
