Ethan Zohn and Jenna Morasca have been one of America’s favorite reality couples for the last decade, but unfortunately their relationship is no more. After an emotional journey together through Ethan’s health battles and Jenna’s career challenges, the two have officially called it quits.

“It is with much consideration and a heavy heart that we are announcing that after 10 years of a loving relationship, the decision was made to move on without each other,” the couple tells PEOPLE Magazine. “We will carry with us the memories of a relationship grounded in love, laughter, support and friendship. We have experienced some of life’s greatest joys and toughest challenges together and our decision to be apart can never diminish that. We want to thank everyone for their support and we ask that our privacy be respected as we move forward.”

Ethan Zohn and Jenna Morasca on 'The Amazing Race'

Ethan and Jenna first met in 2003 after both winning their season’s off Survivor — Jenna won Survivor: Amazon and Ethan won Survivor: Africa. Following that, they went on to compete as a team on The Amazing Race but were eliminated on episode two. They even had their own reality show, Everyday Health.

In 2009 he was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a rare type of cancer. In May of that same year, he started chemotherapy but unfortunately, the cancer had returned by September. Ethan than received a clean CT scan in 2010 and remained in remission for nearly two years but in late 2011, the cancer had returned.

Through everything, Jenna remained committed to Ethan as well as finding out what she wanted to do in life. Last year, she graduated from Columbia University where she received a master’s in counseling and clinical psychology. Ethan, of course, was in attendance.

“To see her battle through all sorts of challenges and still find her passion for academics is such an inspiration,” Ethan said at the time. “Plus, now I don’t have to pay for therapy.”
