You might think that anyone would be devastated by a situation like that, but Mama Cax did not lose her positive approach to life. “I recognize how lucky I am and that many can’t afford medical treatments and a disabled person as a whole face unparalleled discrimination,” said Mama Cax to Bored Panda. “In many parts of the world, amputees like me are politically and socially excluded. I feel like I’m in a position to make a difference, and one day is an advocate for people with disabilities.”
