Ashley Cain raises £1m in hours in bid to get treatment to save daughter's life as generous fans donate £5k every MINUTE

ASHLEY Cain has raised £1million in 16 hours after begging fans and his celebrity pals to help pay for his daughter's potentially life-saving treatment in Singapore.

The heartbroken reality star revealed seven-month-old Azaylia's leukaemia relapse this week – and in a race against time to find a cure he launched a GoFundMe page to secure funding.

The Ex on the Beach star says flying to Singapore for a year-long CAR-T therapy, plus a haplo transplant, will give Azaylia the best chance at survival.

Just 16 hours after posting his plea, the GoFundMe page hit its £1million target after 73,000 people donated.

Ashley, 30, told fans: "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 savea 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!

"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!"

Love Island stars Molly-Mae Hague and Maura Higgins generously donated £1,000 each.

Jacqueline Jossa handed over £500.

Molly-Mae replied: "The strongest little baby girl."

Ashley and Safiyya  welcomed Azaylia in August, and were left devastated when she was diagnosed with leukaemia at eight weeks old.

"Mentally exhausted" Ashley was devastated to reveal this week there are "very few options" left to treat her leukaemia.

The seven-month-old underwent a bone marrow test following her recent transplant – but it proved ineffective.

Sending donations to Ashley's little girl, one fan said: "This beautiful little girl deserves a chance to live xx."

Another added: "You’ve got this Azaylia."

Someone else said: "I want Azaylia to be cured & live a happy life, such a beautiful little girl."
