"It was a pleasure to see you again @chicbykarina. You are warrior, an inspiration of positivity and courage," Bundchen responded. "I will be praying for you. Sending you love and light always."

According to one of Xavier's recent videos, she has a tumor in her lungs and a cancer behind her knees. The Brazilian-born ninth-grader had been previously diagnosed with lung cancer at age 12, but this past year she'd been in remission, reported the New York Daily News.
