Slick Woods has revealed she’s undergoing treatment for cancer.
Instagram account, The Shade Room, had 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 sympathy.
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 Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty lingerie show where she continued to emphasise her point in the caption, stating ‘I thought I told ya’ll I’m not no victim’.
Despite not intending to gain sympathy, she did received 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 amongst the sea of supportive comments from 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 (she even went into labour whilst heavily pregnant 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 by Slick, 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 post throughout the chemotherapy treatment that she’s currently receiving.
