ASHLEY Cain says he is “holding onto hope” over his baby daughter’s leukemia relapse – but admits his “heart is being torn to pieces”.
The reality TV star broke down in tears as he spent the night in hospital with his seven-month-old daughter Azaylia.
The 30-year-old told his social media followers the devastating news that they are now left with “very few options” to beat the illness.
But sharing a poem written by a fan, Ashley insisted he is “hanging onto hope”.
He told fans: “Today has been one of the most difficult days of my life. I feel like my heart is being torn to pieces.
“But as I’m staring over at my little baby girl in her cot from my hospital bed, I see hope.
“Hope that I will hang onto, hold tight and use to fight every inch and every second of this fight!”
Azaylia had undergone a bone marrow transplant, but it had proven ineffective – with Ashley and his partner Safiyya left broken-hearted.
Their baby girl was urgently admitted back into hospital following the test results, and Ashley filmed from her hospital bedside as he told fans: “I’m just broken.”
He later took to his social media Story once back at home, revealing that Safiyya was the one staying with their daughter overnight.
Ashley looked visibly devastated and fought back tears as he shared his hope for Azaylia’s future.
He said: “I’m at home now, Saf’s doing the first night at hospital and I’m at home tonight, it’s crazy how lonely it feels here.
“I’m gutted, I’m heartbroken, I can’t believe it. I can’t believe it.

“Looking at her, she’s so strong, so full of life, developing so well, and despite all the odds… She’s got through every round of treatment so far.
“It’s just she has this monster of a disease that’s proving difficult to get rid of. But in herself, she’s so good and so healthy.”
