When she was 14 years old, Mama Cax was diagnosed with cancer and told she only had three weeks to live.

Incredibly, Cax, whose birth name is Cacsmy Brutus, survived. However, her survival came at a price—doctors had to amputate her right leg.

Many years later, the Haitian-American woman has become a popular champion of body positivity and a prominent campaigner for people with disabilities.

Her mission is to change perceptions of how people with disabilities should look like

Through her popular fashion blog, mamacax.com and her Instagram page, Cax "uses 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."

She is keen to make a difference, especially for people who have not been as lucky as she has.

Speaking to boredpanda.com, she said: “I think humanity or the lack thereof keeps me moving forward. Seeing all the kindness in the world and people who have supported me on my journey makes me feel like I shouldn’t give up.”
