MTV’s Ashley Cain reaches £1m target in bid to save daughter’s life amid leukaemia battle

Ashley Cain has reached his £1million target to get his daughter potentially life-saving treatment in Singapore.

Ashley reached his target in 16 hours after generous fans and friends donated £5,000 every five minutes.

The MTV star revealed baby daughter Azaylia’s leukaemia relapse this week.

And in a race against the clock to help the seven-month old, Ashley, 30, created a GoFundMe page to raise the necessary funds for crucial treatment.

The £1million raised will mean the Ex on the Beach star is able to fly to Singapore for a year-long CAR-T therapy and a haplo transplant to give Azaylia a fighting chance.

Ashley told fans on the page: “After long discussions and a global outreach for treatment, our consultants along with consultants from around the world have come to the conclusion that the ONLY option to save a minimum period of 1 year.

“Because of the aggressiveness of Azaylia’s disease, we don’t have time on our side and we may have to fly out within a matter of weeks.

“Azaylia is such a strong little girl who has fought through every near impossible battle so far and she has done it all with love in her heart and a smile on her face!

“We pray that we can raise the funds to get her to Singapore so she can continue fighting for the life that she loves so much!

“Azaylia has changed our lives, she has made our lives and she deserves the chance to live her own life. She is beautiful, she is strong, she is courageous and she glows with hope and happiness.

“Our hearts are intertwined and with one beat of her heart, our hearts beat along together. Please help our hearts continue to beat as one!

He added: “We are on our knees asking for help to get us to Singapore. Even the smallest of donations can help us reach out goal! Please help us to save our beautiful daughter Azaylia, she has inspired not only us as her parents but so many other people around the world.

“If you have been following our journey you can see that she shows us all everyday how much she loves life and wants to be here!”

Ashley and girlfriend Safiyya welcomed Azaylia back in August and were left heartbroken when she was diagnosed with leukaemia at just eight weeks old.
