The model seems to be in good spirits. On Instagram, she posted a photo of her at the Fenty show and said “I thought I told y’all I’m not not victim.”

Last year, Woods made headlines when she walked Rihanna’s SavagexFenty fashion show in September 2018 hours before she went into labor and gave birth to her son, Saphir.

Melanoma is a skin cancer that develops in the melanin producing cells. To reduce your risk of developing it, it is best to wear sunscreen daily, avoid direct sunlight for long periods of time and to notice changes in your skin.
