Her heartfelt caption, as well as the sight of the smiling diva on a hospital bed, despite the attached life-support system, and tell-tale signs of daunting chemo sessions earned the young model goodwill messages and prayers from followers.

One wrote:

"Get better soon, beautiful. Praying for your strength and endurance."

Also sympathizing with the beauty icon were a handful of famous figures, including Teyana Taylor, Miguel, Lala Anthony, and Janelle Monae, all sending out prayers and wishes of swift recovery.

In a recent post, the icon shared a photo of herself seated in a wheelchair, along with a caption that expressed the numbing after-effect of her treatment sessions, which relegated her to a wheelchair.

"Just grateful to be able to flex another day."

And she has a lot more to be grateful for, including her one-year-old son, Saphir, whose name is tattooed boldly on her upper arm.
