Jennifer Lyon, fourth-place finisher on "Survivor: Palau," passed away of breast cancer at the age of 37 in January 2010. She was given a lovely video montage during the "Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains" live finale show.

Lyon's diagnosis of stage three breast cancer came in 2005. She endured a double mastectomy at the time and then started her chemotherapy.

Austin Carty, a "Survivor: Panama" contestant who dated Lyon in 2007, told US back in January when she passed away that Jenn "was a genuinely selfless, sweet-natured person. She always had a smile. She cared about every person. This has really rocked the 'Survivor' community."

Jenn was an ally of "Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains" contestant Tom Westman during the Palau season. When the final four vote was split between Jenn and Ian, they went to a fire-building challenge and Ian pulled out the win, leaving Jenn with a 4th-place finish. Jenn's website shows that she has been advocating for breast cancer research since her diagnosis 5 years ago.
