29-yr-old Top Chef contestant Fatima Ali has revealed that the rare form of cancer she dealt with last year has returned "with a vengeance" and that she has just about a year to live. She made the revelation in a Bon Appetit essay. She also shared what she plans to do with the time she has left on earth...
It’s funny, isn’t it? When we think we have all the time in the world to live, we forget to indulge in the experiences of living. When that choice is yanked away from us, that’s when we scramble to feel. I am desperate to overload my senses in the coming months, making reservations at the world’s best restaurants, reaching out to past lovers and friends, and smothering my family, giving them the time that I so selfishly guarded before.
And now comes the heartwarming news that her fellow contestants, chefs & foodies have started a GoFundMe campaign to raise money so that Chef Fati can achieve her goal of overloading her senses in the coming months by visiting some of the best restaurants in the world. If you'd like to donate, click the link below. I'm sending prayers up for Chef Fati to get the most joy & happiness out of the time she has left with her loved ones...God bless her.
