Mama Cax, born Cacsmy Brutus was a Haitian-American Blogger, Advocate, Motivational Speaker and Model. She became an amputee after losing her leg to bone cancer and dealt with lung cancer. She eventually became an in-demand model.
She studied in NY, France, Tunis & Rome and held a B.A & M.A in International Studies. Mama Cax, used social media as a platform to talk about body positivity, but most importantly, dismantle the image of what people with disabilities should be or look like.
On September 15th, 2016 (Under the Obama Administration), she was invited to the White House to walk in the first ever White house Fashion show. The event was a celebration of inclusive design, assistive technology, and prosthetics.
She modeled bravely with or without her prosthetic leg and was passionate about spreading messages of self-love and acceptance.
Sadly, Cax passed away on Monday, Dec. 16, 2019 following a week-long stay at a hospital in England. She was just 30 years old.
