Landmarks Around The World Light Up Orange For Ashley Cain's Dying Daughter Azaylia

Landmarks across the world have turned orange to support Azaylia Cain who is battling leukaemia.

The Blackpool Power, Niagara Falls and Toronto's CN Tower have shown their support for Ashley Cain and Safiyya Vorajee's eight-month-old daughter.

Ashley's partner and Azaylia's mother Safiyya posted pictures of the landmarks on her Instagram stories and thanked them for their support.

Leukaemia awareness is represented by the colour orange.

Azaylia was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer called acute myeloid leukaemia at just eight weeks after she born in August last year.

In the months since Azaylia's diagnosis, The Ex On the Beach star and Safiyya have raised more than £1.5 million for her cancer treatment fund. They intended to take their daughter to Singapore to undergo life saving CAR T-cell therapy, but they were recently dealt a devastating blow when the hospital informed that the treatment was no longer an option because her cancer was so rare.

Ashley and Safiyya were allowed to take Azaylia home from the hospital for good towards the beginning of April, to be made 'comfortable' in her final days, after the news that her cancer had progressed too much for any more treatment in the UK.

However, she sadly has gone back and forth between home and the hospital in the following days. She was put on oxygen last Wednesday to help her sleep comfortably after a hospital dash in the early hours of the morning.

Prior to that visit, she had also visited the hospital to have another platelet transfusion, after her condition deteriorated to the point where she was crying tears of blood.

Fans, supporters, and celebrity pals have rallied around Azaylia as Ashley and Safiyya continue to share their journey on social media. In April, people from around the world took part in a clap for Azaylia tribute - similar to the clap for carers during the first lockdown - to share their support.

Ashley and Safiyya have been trying to make her last days at home as filled with joy as they can, surrounding her with loved ones and spending as much quality time with her as they can.

Last week, Azaylia ate solid food for the first time in two weeks. Safiyya shared sweet a video of the eight-month-old on her Instagram, writing: "We have Azaylia's grandma here and she has just made some dinner for me and look who's eaten her greens?"

Recently, thousands of people have called for brave Azaylia to be nominated for a Pride Of Britain award.
