Slick Woods has been diagnosed with cancer.

The 23-year-old model took to Instagram this week to reveal her diagnosis. The news comes just over a year after Woods gave birth to her son, Saphir. According to The Shade Room, the model is battling stage 3 melanoma cancer.

In the pic, Woods is dancing with some friends and sticking her tongue out. "How I feel about chemotherapy, shout out to everyone that gotta go through it," she captioned the shot, adding "#AtLeastImAlreadyBald."

The post elicited responses from some of Woods' famous friends including Taraji P. Henson who wrote, "You are already on the other side of this [healthy] and strong like it never happened. I adore you."

"Love u sis," Lala Anthony added.


In a follow up post featuring a photo of her son, Woods requested that everyone "stop treating me like a victim."

Woods initially rose to fame after walking in Rihanna's  2018 Savage X Fenty just hours before giving birth to her son. Shortly after the show and her son's birth, Woods revealed that she was in labor while on the runway.
