In 2017, Fatima was diagnosed with Ewing Sarcoma, a bone cancer. On the 10th of January, Ali updated her fans on her condition that was, unfortunately, getting worse rather than better. Ali was known not only for her great cooking but also for her "personality and heart".

Last spring, she told her fans and followers that she was cancer-free, but in September, it came back with a vengeance and doctors told her she had one year to live.

In a heartwarming now, Bruce added: 'It's with a heavy heart we say goodbye to Fatima Ali today, as she has lost her battle with cancer. "Hearing you talk about your mom with so much love and wishing my kids would speak the same of me one day. I dream of being myself again, but I know I'll never quite be the same, and that's okay", the quote reads.

She initially wrote a heartfelt essay for Bon Appetit in the fall explaining that her cancer had returned after fighting it off.

Her family confirmed her passing to U.S. network Bravo, which airs the series there.

The explosion was half an hour after Pemex closed the valve, he said, because high-octane petrol was still in the pipe. The anti-theft operation, which he launched on December 20, had led to shortages and long queues at petrol stations.

"My dearest Fatima, this is how I will remember you til my time on earth is done". She attended the Culinary Institute of America and became a junior sous chef at Café Centro.

29-year-old, Fatima gained popularity, after appearing in USA television show the Top Chef in 2017 and won the contest in 2018, the year she was diagnosed with bone cancer. She enrolled in the Culinary Institute of America and started working in NY restaurants, eventually becoming executive sous chef at Macy's Stella 34 and La Fonda Del Sol, Bravo said.

When she was 18 years old, she moved to NY to pursue a culinary career and worked in such restaurants as Stella 34 Trattoria and La Fonda Del Sol. She wrote that she planned to eat at as many restaurants as possible.

On Friday, Fatima's family confirmed to Pakistani newspaper Dwan that she lost her battle with bone cancer.
