Padma Lakshmi supports 'Top Chef' contestant Fatima Ali amid cancer battle

UPI News Service, 01/17/2018 

Padma Lakshmi is showing her support for a "Top Chef contestant with cancer.

The 47-year-old "Top Chef" host said in an Instagram post Tuesday that she visited Fatima Ali in the hospital prior to the Season 15 hopeful undergoing surgery to remove a cancerous tumor.

"I'd love it if everyone joins me today in saying a special prayer for our @cheffati who went into surgery a couple hours ago," Lakshmi captioned a photo with Ali at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York.

"She was in good spirits when we walked her into OR, and am hoping for a great outcome today. #topchef," she added.

Ali was diagnosed with Ewing's sarcoma, a rare type of bone and soft tissue cancer, in the fall.

The 28-year-old chef said in a post on her own account that she was having a tumor removed from her left shoulder.

"Going in for surgery today to get that tumor out of my left shoulder. Feeling content knowing I have so many well wishers and prayers from all around the world," she wrote.

Ali previously told Bravo's The Daily Dish that her fellow Season 15 contestants and Lakshmi have supported her since her diagnosis.

"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. And Padma has been wonderful," she said.

"Top Chef" Season 15 airs Thursdays on Bravo.
