There is devastating news for the Top Chef family as their very own fan favorite Fatima Ali died tragically battling cancer.

And the news reached out to the public as fellow star Bruce Kalman updated a sorrowful post online. What makes it even more tragic is that Fatima’s loss came to the world just four months after she was told that she had a year to live.

And this time doctors believed that even treatments like chemotherapy would not help her.

Although Fatima Ali did not post to her fans for a long while, her last words before her death were filled with gratitude. She thanked all her fans for giving her joy and requested them to send lots of prayers her way.
