The former Top Chefcontestant took to Instagram on Thursday to let people know that she unfortunately hasn’t been doing well.
“I know it’s been ages since I posted and most may have figured out why. I’m sick and unfortunately I’m getting sicker,” Ali wrote alongside a selfie from a hospital bed. “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,” she continued. “I’ll try to keep everyone updated the best that I possibly can.”
"We were all stumped, because how can the cancer come back in two months? I had clear scans. I was almost there, at the finish line, and now I was getting yanked back," she emotionally recalled. "When my doctor said that it is probably about a year without treatment, in my head I just knew I had to make this year count.”
