Ashley Cain’s daughter, who he shares with girlfriend Safiyya Vorajee, was diagnosed with leukaemia at eight weeks old and has battled the cancer ever since, with a number of failed treatments.
Ashley and Safiyya set up a Go Fund Me page with the hopes of flying Azaylia to Singapore for CAR-T therapy plus a haplo transplant. The online fundraiser reached over £1million in just one day, exceeding their expectations and making their hopes to save Azaylia’s life a possibility.
In preparation for their journey abroad, Safiyya has opened up on the procedures her little girl is going through, including a blood transfusion that will be sent to the doctors in Singapore ahead of their arrival.
“We’ve got a heavy morning today, we are getting a bone marrow test done and then Azaylia needs 60ml of blood taken from her,” she told her 230,000 Instagram followers as she walked down a hallway with her daughter cradled in her arms.
She continued: “She needs to have a blood transfusion so that they can send the blood over to Singapore. She’s very swollen this morning, she’s on lots of fluid as that keeps the leukaemia from sticking.”
