“How I feel about chemotherapy, shout out to everyone that gotta go through it #atleastimalreadybald,” Woods, 23, wrote at the time as the caption of a photo of herself with boyfriend Micky Munday and friends.

In a second IG post, she made clear that she doesn’t want folks to pity her, saying, “Stop treating me like a victim.”
