Meet Mama Càx: model, globetrotter, blogger, foodie, and inspiration.
I’ve made it my personal mission to infiltrate the “beauty industry” – Mama Càx
Mama Càx was born in Brooklyn in 1989 but was raised in Montreal & Haiti. At the age of 14 she was diagnosed with bone & lung cancer and given just 3 weeks to live. However, she beat the odds with an experimental drug and some luck. Surviving cancer came with a price; she had her right leg amputated. Today she walks with a prosthetic leg along with two forearm crutches.
Mama Càx’s blog focuses on her travels, her love for food and fashion
Mama Càx say on her website – I got the idea to start Mama Cax when I backpacked through South East Asia in 2013. I use crutches and when I travel I like to bring a couple of extra crutch tips (rubber tips at the base of the crutches). Thailand is one of the top producers of rubber meaning packing 6 pairs of crutch tips all the way across the world was so unnecessary & this made me realize that the world doesn’t need more bloggers. It needs more bloggers with unique experiences. My plan is to have a travel blog sharing my experience as a woman, as a person of colour and as a person with a physical disability.
