Mama Cax Dead - Model & Activist Dies at 30

They continue, "To say Cax was a fighter would be an understatement".

"Childhood cancer left me with a million scars (mostly emotional)" she wrote in an Instagram post. "A powerhouse beauty that brought her strength to the @savagexfenty stage this year inspiring so many across the globe", Rihanna said in a tweet.

"A queen. A force".

Cax opened up about the status of her health on social media last week, mentioning that she developed "severe abdominal pain" and was rushed to the emergency while she was in London. "Rest In Power sis @mama_cax".

A cancer survivor and amputee, she was a vocal advocate for inclusivity in fashion and most notably appeared in Rihanna's second Savage x Fenty show this year.

Rihanna lead the tributes to the model Mama cax, who died at the age of 30. At 14, Cax was diagnosed with bone cancer that metastasized to her lungs.

In October 2019, Cax announced she would be participating in the New York Marathon in a wheelchair.

The model - whose real name was Cacsmy Brutus - died on December 16th after spending a week in the hospital.

British actress Jameela Jamil described her "beautiful friend" Cax as an "extraordinary role model".

"She ended up being delivered home TWICE prematurely by our underfunded NHS and passed away inside her college accommodation. This happens so often now in the United Kingdom, especially to young black women", Jamil posted on Twitter. After landing a Wet "n" Wild beauty campaign in 2017, she signed with Jag Models, later booking ads with Becca Cosmetics and Olay and strutting the catwalk for brands like Chromat.

Glamour magazine posted a picture of Cax with the caption: "Mama Cax was a crusader for visibility and change in the fashion industry". It was an honour attending to know you, and witnessing your energy and magnificence. "Love to your family".
