Ali has remained positive throughout her experience, despite the fact that she had to undergo multiple rounds of chemotherapy to get rid of her Ewing’s Sarcoma, a type of cancer that often occurs around the bones.

“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,” she continued in her post. “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.”

Stay strong Fatima Ali!
