Fashion blogger and model Mama Cax died at the age of 30 after losing the battle with cancer. Her real name is Cacsmy Brutus. The American model was in London for a photo shoot when she was ill.
She had spent the past week in hospital experiencing severe abdominal pain and died on Monday.
Her family shared the news of her death on Instagram. They wrote: “To say that Cax was a fighter would be an understatement. As a cancer survivor, she had grown accustomed to taking on life’s several challenges head-on and successfully.”
Mama has decided to spend Christmas in the UK before her death.
In her last post before her death, she said on her Instagram: “Y’all 2019 has been one of the best years for me, cannot deny it! but 2019 also tried to take me out. I was gearing up for a wonderful couple of weeks went from celebration an anniversary with bae in Serbia, flew to NY for a quick job then had a quick shoot in London before heading to L.A to celebrate a fruitful yearlong partnership with my #sephorasquad family.
She added: “While in London I started experiencing severe abdominal pain and was rushed to the emergency room they dismissed it as inflammation and sent me back to my hotel with some pain meds.”
The next morning I asked the hotel to call me an ambulance. They noticed that I had several blood clots in my leg, thigh, abdomen and near an IVC filter near my Lungs (which is a medical device that prevents clots from entering the lungs.
“Unfortunately flying puts me at risk of a pulmonary embolism, therefore, I’m stuck across the pond until after Christmas. I hope y’all are gearing up for a wonderful holiday season”, she said
