23-year-old model Slick Woods has revealed on Instagram that she's receiving chemotherapy, presumably as treatment for an undisclosed cancer. She joked with followers: "#atleastimalreadybald."
In two follow up posts, Woods asked fans to stop treating her as a "victim," then compared herself to 80s supermodel Gia Carangi, who died of AIDS-related complications at just 26. Albeit "without the drugs." (Carangi was a heroin addict.)
It's unknown how long Woods has been sick. She's been working steadily over the past year, walking in Rihanna's NYFW Savage x Fenty extravaganza and launching a footwear collaboration with The Kooples. The model also starred in her first feature film, Goldie, which premiered at the 2019 Tribeca Film Festival.
She gave birth to a son, Saphir, in September 2018 — just hours after walking for Savage x Fenty alongside Rihanna.
