Fatima Ali Does Not Want to Go Camping!

Fatima Ali has confirmed she's home after undergoing surgery to remove a cancerous tumor in her left shoulder earlier this month. The Season 15 Top Chef contestant even got a visit from fellow cheftestant Joseph Flamm upon her arrival back from the hospital. "Home from the hospital and a visit from @insta.flamm. Life is looking up," she shared on Instagram. 

Fatima was diagnosed with Ewing's Sarcoma, a bone and soft tissue cancer, last fall. She opened up to The Daily Dish about her battle with cancer and how all of the support from the Top Chef crew has made such a difference during her journey last December. "All of the contestants have reached out in many ways; we are a tight group. I’ve had an outpouring of lovely messages and care packages from the production team and the producers," Fatima shared at the time. 

In addition to getting visits from various cheftestants throughout her battle with the disease, Top Chef host, Padma Lakshmi, has also been by her side.

"And Padma has been wonderful. We've caught up over lunch, and she has come to sit with me during my chemo treatments to keep me company," Fatima added about getting tons of support from the fashionable judge. "I'm pretty thankful for my Top Chef fam."
