Slick Woods is battling numbness in her legs while she undergoes treatment for cancer.

The model, real name Simone Thompson, announced on Instagram last month that she was fighting a type of skin cancer and was undergoing chemotherapy.

Slick has been spotted out and about since the diagnosis, and took to social media on Monday night to show her fans and followers that she was determined not to let the disease get in the way of living her life.

Sharing videos on Instagram Stories of her joking around with friends while at The London in New York City, the 23-year-old was able to enjoy a night out when she was provided with a wheelchair by staff at the hotel.

“Legs numb left hand still numb I hate bulls**t and the London gave me a wheelchair,” she captioned a clip.

In another video, she insisted the wheelchair would not stop her from enjoying herself.

“I’m going to the strip club with a wheelchair, I don’t give a f**k about nothing,” Slick confidently stated. “I am really in a wheelchair.”

The mother-of-one was inundated with supportive messages from her famous friends, including rapper Cardi B, who commented: “We LOVE YOU!!!!!!!! And I got your Ugg’s. My mom FaceTime me the package I’m wearing them when I get to NY!”

Empire star Taraji P. Henson and fellow model Jasmine Sanders also left a series of messages and emojis on the star’s video.

Back in November, Slick revealed the news of her health struggles on Instagram, but stopped short of saying exactly what was wrong.

However, she later reportedly told editors at The Shade Room that she is “battling stage 3 melanoma cancer”.

Model Slick Woods is undergoing chemotherapy to treat melanoma cancer.

The 23-year-old model, real name Simone Thompson, made reference to the medical treatment in a post on Instagram on Tuesday as she shared a photo of herself sticking out her tongue while out with her boyfriend Micky Munday and some friends.

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

As fans expressed their shock at the news and sent their well wishes, Slick shared a picture of a pouting child and urged her followers not to pity her, declaring, “Stop treating me like a victim.”

She stopped short of sharing further details about her condition in the post, but editors at The Shade Room claim she told them she had a type of skin cancer.

“She exclusively tells us that she is battling stage 3 melanoma cancer and that the cancer is spreading. She says she’s currently fighting for her life,” they wrote.

Slick has received a few supportive messages from famous friends like actress Taraji P. Henson.

“You are already on the other side of this heathy (sic) and strong like it never happened. I adore you,” the Empire star commented, while Power actress La La Anthony wrote, “Love u sis (sic)”.

Slick later added a picture of herself at the Savage x Fenty show in September, and wrote: “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.”

The post appears to be referring to supermodel Gia Carangi, who died of AIDS-related complications at the age of 26 in 1986.

Representatives for Slick, who famously went into labour moments after walking the runway at Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty fashion show in September, 2018, have yet to comment on the model’s health issue.
