FACING CANCER WITH HUMOR

Slick shared several posts in which she addresses her attitude concerning her condition, and expresses her usual zany humor.

In reference to the side effects of the chemo, which usually include loss of hair, Slick captioned a photo of herself dancing with friends and boyfriend Micky Munday: 

“How I feel about chemotherapy, shout out to everyone that gotta go through it #atleastimalreadybald.” 

SLICK WOOD REFUSES PITY

Slick, born Simone Thompson, shared another post with a photo of her son Saphir sporting a disgusted expression on his tiny face, and captioned it:

“Stop treating me like a victim.”

"I'M NO VICTIM"

The feisty model posted one more message in which she referred to her condition accompanied by a striking portrait of herself in vivid green and bedecked with jewelry. She captioned it:

"Modern day Gia without the drugs #justcrazy “where does everyone go when they have to go” I thought I told y’all I’m not no victim"

IN THE FIGHT TO WIN

Slick's attitude is no surprise. Slick is a fighter and a ferociously determined woman, as evidenced by the way she imposed her unconventional beauty on the fashion world.

Slick revealed that her melanoma is spreading and that this is a fight for her life - and one we are sure she will win. This woman is a warrior, and as she herself states, not a victim, but a survivor.

We reach out to Slick with admiration and prayers, and wishes of her swift recovery. 

SLICK WOODS - IN LABOR ON THE RUNWAY

In September 2018, model Slick Woods was walking the runway for Rihanna's underwear brand, Savage x Fenty, at New York Fashion Week.

She was also 9 months pregnant, and unbeknownst to the audience who watched her strut her stuff in a strappy teddy, thigh-highs, and pasties., she was already in labor.

14 hours later, Slick gave birth to her first child, a son she named Saphir. Slick shares Saphir with ex-boyfriend model Adonis Bosso.
