Slick Woods is currently battling an illness she rather doesn’t have. The 23-year-old model and actress revealed on Tuesday, November 19 that she has cancer by sharing a positive post about undergoing chemotherapy.
“How I feel about chemotherapy, shout out to everyone that gotta go through it,” she wrote underneath a playful photo of sticking out her tongue while looking above. She then joked that she shouldn’t have to worry about losing hair because she’s already bald. To those who don’t know, hair loss is one of the side effects of chemotherapy.
Fans have since sent prayers to Slick, including her boyfriend Micky Munday and Taraji P. Henson. “U got this,” so the “Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood” star wrote, while the “Empire” star said, “You are already on the other side of this heathy and strong like it never happened. I adore you.” One user commented, “Sending love this s**t is all over my family. I know it’s hard but also doable. Keep going, you’re amazing!”
“Sending you prayers my queen,” another said, as someone else gave her/his support, “You got this Queen #wearesurvivors. You have my support. I’m a stage 4 lymphoma cancer survivor.” One person believed Slick could get through this as saying, “You got this champ ! We praying and rooting for you champ.” There was also one individual who wrote, “I love you and you have overcome so much more so know u got this you are queen and soldier!!”
