Model Slick Woods Battling Stage 3 Melanoma

Slick Woods is undergoing chemotherapy just over a year after giving birth to her son, Saphir, in September 2018.

The model — who has appeared in campaigns for Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty — announced Wednesday on Instagram that she was seeking treatment.

That same day, she told The Shade Room she is fighting for her life, as her stage 3 melanoma cancer is spreading.

“How I feel about chemotherapy, shout out to everyone that gotta go through it #atleastimalreadybald,” the 23-year-old wrote on social media.

Despite her health issues, she refuses to be victimized by her circumstances.

“Stop treating me like a victim,” she added.

In September 2018, then-pregnant Woods went into labor immediately after walking the Savage X Fenty Fall/Winter 2018/2019 show.

Months before this, she confirmed to Elle UK that her baby’s father is Ivorian-Canadian model Adonis Bosso.

“My son’s going to be gorgeoussss,” she told the publication.
