Ashley Cain Reveals Daughter Azaylia Stopped Breathing During Seizure

Ashley Cain has revealed his baby daughter Azaylia, who is battling a rare form of leukaemia, had to have emergency care after she had a seizure and stopped breathing.

The Ex On the Beach star made the heartbreaking confession on Instagram on Thursday, when he also updated fans about Azaylia's condition and the effect it has had on his own mental health while on a 5K run.

Eight-month-old Azaylia was diagnosed with acute myloid leukaemia when she was eight weeks old. Ashley and Azaylia's mother Safiyya Vorajee rushed their daughter to the hospital this week due to issues with her nasogastric feeding tube.

Ashley said: "Yesterday we got into hospital, got her platelets done and managed to sort her NG [nasogastric] tube out, thankfully.

"Then just as we were getting back into the car she had a spike in temperature and like a seizure, her eyes were rolling, she was hot, she wasn't breathing."

Ashley then went into detail about the treatments brave Azaylia needed in that moment. He added: "We had to get her on the oxygen straight away and get her cool on the way home.

"Finally when we were home she was settled. Then when we got home it happened again. We ended up having a nurse from the palliative care team at our house until 1am. It was difficult."

He continued: "There's a lot you don't see, there's a lot you wouldn't want to see.

"It's 24 hours a day, seven days a week with no breaks, but it's all worth it because guess what? She woke up again this morning.

"All the hard work we're putting in now, it's worth it in the end to get that little smile, her eyes opening - it's amazing."

Azaylia returned home from hospital for good towards the beginning of April, to be made 'comfortable' in her final days, following the tragic news that her cancer had progressed too much for any more treatment in the UK.

Unfortunately Azaylia has gone back and forth between the hospital and home in the weeks since.

We're so sorry for Ashley, Safiyya and little Azaylia. Keep fighting, champ.
