Despite the challenges Caxmee has had to face from a tender age, she has pursued her dreams and has thrived doing that. Many people in her shoes would have been wearing log clothes to cover their leg but not Caxmee. She has over the years turned her weakness into strength. Her fashion sense is inspiring. Her words are full of wisdom.
Writing on her blog, Caxmee tells how she defeated cancer and what cost.
Surviving cancer came with a price; I had my right leg amputated. Today I walk with a prosthetic leg along with two forearm crutches.
Today, Caxmee is a model and travel/fashion blogger, inspiring people with her words and photographs. Going through her social media profiles will just inspire you. She’s a real fashionista!
Frankly, if I had a chance at a do-over, I wouldn’t change anything. My experience has taught me how precious life is. Living life to the fullest while making a difference shall be my goal before I expire.
