During her appearance, Padma told Andy Cohen about Season 15 contestant Fatima Ali, who went into surgery to remove a cancerous tumor after being diagnosed with Ewing’s sarcoma, a very rare type of cancerous tumor that grows in your bones or soft tissue.

“She’s doing a lot better,” Padma said. “She’s doing great. She’s doing really well. She did the whole season, and then she got diagnosed in the early fall.”
