Ashley Cain’s seriously ill daughter rushed to hospital for blood transfusion ‘which could give her extra day to live’

ASHLEY Cain revealed seriously ill daughter Azaylia was rushed to hospital last night for a blood transfusion which could have given her extra days to live.

The heartbroken dad demanded the transfusion after eight-month-old Azaylia began to bleed from her nose.

Azaylia has a rare form of leukaemia as well as tumours on her brain and other organs.

Speaking on the car ride home from the hospital, Ashley said: "We rushed Azaylia in tonight on oxygen because she'd been bleeding out from the nose.

"Because of her blood cancer it means it eats away at the cells that help to clot the blood, so with the tumours, plus the lack of platelets in her body, that means she could bleed out from the inside and that's no way for Azaylia to go."

He turned his camera to show Azaylia resting peacefully opposite him and said she had been "so happy and lively."

Ashley said the quick-thinking decision to get a transfusion could have extended his daughter's life.

"If that can preserve us for one day, two days, three days, every day's a blessing," he said. "Let's go, champ."

In a plea to other parents of very ill children, Ashley said: "Make sure you know your stuff."

"By taking pride in your child's care and not leaving it to anybody else you know certain things that can preserve your child's life or even give them an extra day or two days on this planet because every moment is precious and I want every parent going through this to understand that."

Over the weekend Ashley thanked Azaylia for 'the best eight months of my life' after bringing her home from hospital.

The tiny tot has been given "just days to live",with her parents taking her home in an ambulance so she can spend her final hours in comfort.

The 30-year-old shared a series of photographs of his baby girl all snug in a pink woolly hat and blanket.

He captioned the pictures: "Yesterday Azaylia returned home from hospital like the fearless little lioness that she is.

"Today is her 8th month birthday! Happy 8 months baby! I honestly thought @therock was my hero until I spent the last 8 months with you."

Praising his brave little girl, he continued: "You taught me how to be strong when I needed strength, you taught me how to smile when I am feeling sad, you taught me how to cherish every single moment – as these moments are all we have.

"You’ve been tenacious, fearless, courageous, positive, happy and loving through times which I thought would make it impossible!

"You’ve given me the best 8 months of my life through the toughest of times. MY HERO. I LOVE YOU."

On Saturday, Ashley and Safiyya Vorajee had an expert come in to get casts of Azaylia's hands and feet done as "so many people wanting one these castings".

Safiyya showed a woman mixing the mould in their kitchen on her Instagram stories and explained she was worried they would "run out of product" because so many people wanted one.

"Getting the most beautiful casting done for my beautiful girl," she captioned the Instagram stories.

She filmed her sleeping daughter with her foot in the mould as her doting dad her held Azaylia with his eyes closed and gently kissing her forehead.

"Getting the most beautiful casting done for my beautiful girl," she captioned the Instagram stories.

Safiyya then filmed herself getting close to Azaylia and Ashley, as her daughter briefly woke up to look at the camera.

The parents then leaned in together to kiss Azaylia's head as the castings lady started on another foot casting.

An emotional Safiyaa then rested her arm on Ashley as she kissed his shoulder, while he cuddled Azaylia.

On Thursday, dad Ashley revealed doctors found more tumours and have run out of options to save his daughter and that they planned to make the most of whatever time she had left.
