Exploring Mama Cax’s Cause of Death
Mama Cax spent a week in the hospital before passing away on December 20, 2019, according to a statement from her family that was released on Instagram. She was 30 years old.
She wrote on Instagram a week prior to her death that she had severe abdominal pain,” and had been “rushed to the emergency room.”
She claimed that at first, medical specialists assumed it was simply inflammation. She had “several blood clots” in her knee, thigh, belly, and close to a filter in her lungs the following morning, so it “got worse.”

As part of her cancer treatment when she was a teenager—about which more below—doctors had implanted the filter there. She continued, “Unfortunately,” “flying puts me at risk of a pulmonary embolism.” She had so made the decision to continue being grounded until after Christmas.
The person who altered Mama Cax’s Wikipedia entry, which states that pulmonary embolism was the cause of death, appears to have been perplexed by this.
No official reports make this assertion. But blood clots can be lethal. Additionally, a blood clot that has “traveled from a deep vein to a lung” is known as a pulmonary embolism. Mama Cax passed away on December 16, 2019, at the Royal London Hospital.
