'Chopped Junior' Winner Fuller Goldsmith Dies From Leukemia Days Before 18th Birthday
Fuller Goldsmith won reality competition “Chopped Junior” at the age of 14. He donated his $10,000 prize to Birmingham Children’s Hospital Division of Hematology and Pediatric Oncology. He went on to appear on “Top Chef Junior” and worked as an assistant to the chef at a Alabama restaurant. He was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia for the first time when he was just 3 years old. The cancer recurred four times, and he announced in February the leukemia had returned.
