Chef Fatima Foundation

Top Chef Fan Favorite Fatima shares her story

The Ellen DeGeneres Show

Fatima talks of hopes, dreams and the love she received from all over the world.

Fatima crosses one off her bucket list by being invited to the Ellen Degeneres show where she tells the story of her disease and discusses her dreams. Despite the initial prognosis, Fatima fought back with positivity: “The only way I was going to beat this is through positivity and rallying people around me. Just keep moving, keep ploughing through every obstacle that came my way.” In July she was diagnosed as cancer-free but then the cancer came back. Fatima comes out to the welcoming crowds all smiles and makes small jokes and shows how hopeful she is – how she plans on spending the last year of her life. Like Fatima, her dreams were large and captivating, her hope was palpable.
