MODEL SLICK Woods announced that she is currently undergoing chemotherapy.
The Savage X Fenty model recently broke the news on Instagram, posting an image of herself sticking her tongue out, alongside her boyfriend Mick Munday and friends.
She penned: “How I feel about chemotherapy, shout out to everyone that gotta go through it #atleastimalreadybald.”
The mother of one’s post was flooded with support and encouragement from fans and celebrities alike, including boyfriend Munday who wrote: “U got this.”
In addition, Hidden Figures actor Taraji P. Henson said: “You are already on the other side of this healthy and strong like it never happened. I adore you.”
23 year old Slick, real name Simone Marie Thompson, has not confirmed the reason why she’s undergoing chemotherapy, but there are a range of reasons as to why she’s getting this treatment beyond cancer.
The NHS reported that chemotherapy can be used to treat a range of disorders including cancer, blood disorders and autoimmune disease.
However, despite challenging circumstances, Woods showed her strength by posting a follow up picture of her son Saphir with the caption: ‘Stop treating me like a victim’.
Woods was originally discovered in LA and modelled for Kanye West’s Yeezy lookbook in 2015. Her unique look and confident presence enabled her to gain significant media attention.
She rose to prominence after becoming singer and beauty mogul Rihanna’s muse. Subsequently she has appeared in a number of Fenty Beauty campaigns and Savage X Fenty shows – most notably in the 2018 Fenty show a few hours before she gave birth.
Since then, Woods has featured in publications including Vogue and Elle and modelled for the likes of Fendi, Marc Jacobs and Calvin Klein.
