Ashley Cain, 30, took to Instagram to ask fans for help in raising £1,000,000 for his daughter Azaylia’s life-saving treatment in Singapore after she relapsed this week. Azaylia was just eight weeks old when he and girlfriend Safiyya were told she has Acute Myeloid Leukaemia.
Doctors told Ashley and his partner their daughter had a “frighteningly high Leukaemia count plus tumours in her spleen, stomach, lungs and kidneys”.
The result of this left her in a critical condition and she was put into intensive care.
The couple have continued to praise their daughter for her “strength and courage” in fighting through her battle.
Earlier this week, the former footballer told his followers Azaylia had relapsed.
In a post, he said: “We are devastated at the news and are left with very few options.
“We, along with the consultants have been reaching out globally in the last 24 hours to find a solution to save Azaylia’s life.”
Ashley followed up his post telling fans they had to apply for an emergency passport after finding fitting treatment for their daughter in Singapore.
He explained: “After long discussions and a global outreach for treatment, our consultants along with consultants from around the world have come to the conclusion that the ONLY option to save Azaylia’s life is to fly to Singapore for CAR-T therapy plus a haplo [haploidentical] transplant, for a minimum period of 1 year.
“Because of the aggressiveness of Azaylia’s disease, we don’t have time on our side and we may have to fly out within a matter of weeks.
“This treatment and associated expenses will be in excess of 1 million pounds with an initial deposit of £500,000 just to be accepted into the hospital and onto the program.”
The former Ex On The Beach star went on to describe his baby girl as “a strong little girl who has fought through every near impossible battle so far”.
He concluded his post asking fans for financial their help to get them to Singapore.

Ashley added: “Even the smallest of donations can help us reach out goal!
“Please help us to save our beautiful daughter Azaylia, she has inspired not only us as her parents but so many other people around the world.
“If you have been following our journey you can see that she shows us all everyday how much she loves life and wants to be here!”
After gaining support from many social media users, the family has now raised over £1,196,370 on their Go Fund Me page.
Celebrities who have donated include Sophie Hinchliffe, aka Mrs Hinch, and Love Island’s Maura Higgins and Molly-Mae Hague.
According to the NHS, Leukaemia is cancer of the white blood cells.
Acute leukaemia means it progresses quickly and aggressively, and usually requires immediate treatment.
The symptoms of AML usually develop over a few weeks and become worse over time.
