Ashley and Safiyya had been sharing their little one's journey in recent months, as she battled a rare form the blood cancer.
She was sent home earlier in April to enjoy her last few days out of hospital, after doctors told the couple she had cancerous tumours running through her whole body, and there was nothing more they could do to treat her condition.
While she battled on for a matter of weeks, Ashley and Safiyya had to return to hospital with their daughter several times this month - once because her heart rate soared to over 200, and also for a platelet transfusions.
