Slick Woods has revealed she’s undergoing treatment for cancer.
Instagram accounts like The Shade Room, have revealed that Slick has Cancer and it’s spreading.
The model and jewellery designer has since posted a string of images and captions on her Instagram clearly telling her nearly one million followers that she isn’t after any sympathy with this news.
In her first Instagram post, Slick shouted out everyone who was going through chemotherapy with the hashtag #atleastimalreadybald. The post following her announcement was a picture of her son, Sapphir with the caption of few words, yet powerful in rhetoric, ‘stop treating me like I’m a victim’.
The post after that was an image of her at one of Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty lingerie show where she continued to emphasise her point in the accompanying caption, stating ‘I thought I told ya’ll I’m not no victim’.
Despite not intending to gain sympathy, she did receive masses of support in her comments section. Words of love and encouragement came from people in the industry such as Oscar-nominated actress and star of TV show Empire, Taraji P. Henson and actress Lala Anthony, and of course amongst a sea of supportive comments from Slick Woods fans.
Slick came into the forefront of popular culture as the muse and front woman of Rihanna’s various campaigns. Firstly with cult beauty brand, Fenty Beauty and now with Savage x Fenty (where a heavily pregnant Slick went into labour at the show) – and she’s become a person in pop culture we have loved ever since.
Whilst none of the specific details have been revealed, such as when she started getting treatment, and the type of cancer, what we do know is that Slick is continuing to keep a social presence on Instagram by posting throughout the chemotherapy treatment that she’s currently receiving.
We wish her all the best.
