Wesleyan grad Tanner Smith will be featured on Saturday's edition of "Everyday Health," a nationally broadcast TV show hosted by former Survivor contestants Ethan Zohn and Jenna Morasca, along with boxer Laila Ali.

The show, which airs at 11 a.m. on ABC, will revisit Smith's organization, Tanner's Totes, which provides fun-filled bags for hospital-bound children. It's an update segment on Tanner's Totes - it was first featured on the show back in the fall.

On this week's show, Smith will present a special tote to Zohn, whose Hodgkin's lymphoma returned late last year.

Smith recently finished his college basketball career at Clemson, where he averaged 11.2 points and 5.1 rebounds as a senior. The 6-foot-5, 210-pounder is one of four players in Tigers history with 1,000 career points, 400 career rebounds and 300 career assists.
