Groundbreaking model, Mama Cax dies at 30

Mama Cax, a groundbreaking model and activist, has died at the age of 30.

The Haitian-American model, whose full name was Cacsmy Brutus, died on Monday after falling ill on a trip to London, her family wrote in an Instagram post.

Cax had lost her leg to lung and bone cancer as a teenager, and was a powerful advocate for women of colour and disabled women in fashion.

“To say that Cax was a fighter would be an understatement,” her family’s statement said.

“As a cancer survivor, she had grown accustomed to taking on life’s several challenges head on and successfully. It is with that same grit… that she fought her last days on earth,” the statement said.
