Ashley Cain has shared the news that his four-month-old baby daughter Azaylia has received a stem cell transplant amid her leukaemia battle.
The 30-year-old Ex on the Beach, shares his daughter with partner Safiyya Vorajee and had revealed the devastating news that his baby's cancer had returned.
Azaylia was diagnosed with a rare form of leukaemia after her birth in October, before Ashley revealed that she needed a stem cell donor in Novemner.
She is being treated in Birmingham Children's Hospital and Ashley has now said that a stem cell transplant has been performed and Azaylia was now on her "toughest journey" as she bids to fight leukaemia.
In an update to fans on Monday, Ashley wrote on Instagram : "Today was by far the biggest day of our lives. One that we have been hoping, wishing and praying for.
"The day Azaylia received her stem cell transplant and begins the toughest journey imaginable to save her precious life! We believe in you princess."
Ashley continued with words of encouragement for his daughter: "You are strong, you are mighty, you are courageous and God is with you!
"You got this Likkle Lion. We love you! ❤️ LETS GO CHAMP!"
The day before, Ashley had shared his thanks after a donor was found.
He wrote on Sunday: "We have finally found a donor for our beautiful little girl! [prayer hands emoji, heart emoji]
"It’s hard to put into words how grateful we’re are for everyone that’s supported, shared and registered to be a donor to help save Azaylia’s life. Thank you to EVERYONE! It's truly overwhelming! [raised fist emoji]."
Ashley did share that there was some devastating news as well, as he revealed that the cancer had returned in his daughter.
He penned on Instagram: "However, after Azaylia’s second round of chemotherapy, we were informed that Azaylia had relapsed and her leukemia had returned. [heartbroken emoji]
"Which highlights how aggressive her cancer is and shows how crucial this transplant will be. It also means she will have to go into transplant with Leukaemia, which is far from what we wanted.
"We were also told that because of her age and the aggressiveness of her cancer, she is in the high risk category for transplant complications and the poor risk category for transplant success.
"Hearing that news was absolutely devastating and has made everyday 10x harder for us and hurt even more than it already did!"
