Beloved Fans Pay Tributes As Cancer Survivor Model Mama Cax Passed Away At 30
News of Mama Cax's death came as a surprise to several of her fans. The beautiful model garnered fame for her efforts as an activist after battling such conditions as lung cancer and osteosarcoma.
When she was 14 years old, she was given only three weeks to live but she survived against the odds. However, her right leg had to be amputated following an unsuccessful hip replacement.
In an article she wrote for Glamour in 2017, she revealed that she had to get a prosthetic after losing her leg and she was depressed about it for a long time. She didn't feel confident in herself which caused her to hide the prosthetic as much as she could.
