‘Personality and heart’: Top Chef star Fatima Ali dead at 29
The popular reality TV star who lost her battle with cancer is being remember for her “personality and heart”.

Top Chef star Fatima Ali died of cancer on Friday after battling the disease twice. She was 29.
The chef, who had been very vocal about her dwindling health on Instagram, succumbed to Ewing’s sarcoma, her family confirmed to US TV network Bravo.
“We are deeply saddened to share the news that Fatima Ali has lost her courageous battle with cancer,” the network told Page Six in a statement on Friday.
“Our thoughts are with her family and friends at this time. People not only fell in love with her cooking, but fell in love with her personality and heart.
“We hope that the beautiful memories shared with her will provide comfort to everyone who knew and loved her.”
Last week, her fellow Bravo contestants reunited to support her.
“Hard to explain the bonds that happen during our time together,” castmate Claudette Wilkins wrote at the time.
“I wish they [sic] under better circumstances that we were together but when one hurts we all hurt and we rally. @cheffati is loved beyond belief and we will be here for her and each other.”
Earlier this month, the 2017 contestant on the cooking competition took to Instagram herself, explaining that she was “getting sicker.”
“I know it’s been ages since I posted and most may have figured out why. I’m sick and unfortunately I’m getting sicker,” Ali wrote.
“Right now all I need are prayers; prayers that are simple. I hope, because a wish is putting on too much responsibility on the other, that you will somehow find forgiveness in your big heart for whenever I must have hurt you.
“I thank you a million times over for when you have given me joy. I’ll try to keep everyone updated the best that I possibly can.”
She initially wrote a heartfelt essay for Bon Appetitin the fall explaining that her cancer had returned after fighting it off.

“The cancer cells my doctors believed had vanished are back with a vengeance in my left hip and femur bone,” Ali wrote last October.
“My oncologist has told me that I have a year to live, with or without the new chemotherapy regimen,” she continued.
“I was looking forward to being 30, flirty and thriving. Guess I have to step it up on the flirting. I have no time to lose.”
