For someone who was once so full of life, it’s ironic that Fatima Ali is now in a battle to fight for that life. However, since sharing with fans late last year that the rare form of bone cancer that she had been battling had come back with a vengeance, the Top Chef star had been somewhat quiet.

That is, until now. On Friday (Jan. 11,) Ali shared an update with her fans from her hospital bed.

“I know it’s been ages since I posted and most may have figured out why,” she wrote alongside a picture of her looking quite frail, further indicating that Ewing’s Sarcoma is slowly overtaking her body. “I’m sick and unfortunately I’m getting sicker. 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.”

Back in October, Ali appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to talk about her current health struggles. At the time, the talk show host informed Ali that she would be giving her $50,000 along with Shutterfly to spend traveling the world and visiting the world’s best restaurants. It remains to be seen whether Ali will be able to pursue that dream.

We join with all those praying for this wonderful woman.
