ASHLEY Cain's GoFundMe for late daughter Azaylia Diamond has soared past £1.6million as generous fans donate in her memory.
The reality TV star, 30, and his girlfriend Safiyya, 34, set up the fundraiser in March after UK doctors said chemotherapy would not be enough to cure Azaylia's Acute Myeloid Leukaemia.
Instead, they said flying the little girl to Singapore for CAR-T therapy for a minimum period of one year was her only hope, to reprogramme her own immune system cells that would then target her cancer.
Owing to the huge costs Azaylia's determined parents reached out to their huge social media followings and asked for help.
Within 24 hours they had reached their target of £1million with fans and fellow influencers sending cash.
Donations came from the likes of fellow Ex On The Beach stars Jemma Lucy, who gave £1,000 and Chet Sket who donated £10,000 through his clothing company Faded.
Others who donated include CEO of fashion brand In The Style Adam Frisby who gave £10,000 and Love Island's Molly-Mae Hague chipped in £1,000.
However, weeks later Ashley and Safiyya were given the devastating news that their daughter could not be treated in Singapore because her cancer was so rare.
Ashley told fans through tears in a video on Instagram, and said: "We had a scan yesterday and the results came back today that they found tumours in her stomach and spleen, her lungs and her kidneys as well as the tumours in her brain and the chemotherapy is not working.
"Her disease is that aggressive that nothing that they are doing, nothing is working.
"And then to make it worse, consultants got an email from Singapore and because Azaylia is one in a trillion – she literally is she's so special – but unfortunately so is her disease, so in Singapore they can't create what they need to treat her leukaemia."
Ashley added in the Instagram video that they had taken her home again to enjoy any remaining time they have with her.
In light of the devastating news, Ashley and Safiyaa continued to update their almost two million followers on their baby daughter's devastating condition.
She passed away on April 25th at home with her parents sharing their final photos on Instagram.
Since then, the couple's fundraiser has continued to raise cash, which the family said they will be donating to other children and their families in the same situation.
They shared on their fundraiser:"We pledged to give back to this community from the moment we were thrust into it and that is something we will always honour."
Tributes have since poured in from people who had donated after Azaylia's death.
One person said: "In loving memory of Azaylia, and I pray that her legacy will live on forever in helping other children in similar shoes. Sending my condolences, hugs and love from Singapore. Her life has touched me deeply and as a mother of 3 young children, Ashley and Safiyya, you have set the bar really high for us all. God loves little Azaylia and she is in heaven now with no more pain. We miss her so so dearly."
Another wrote: "In memory of Azaylia and all the other children fighting childhood cancer. As a mum to a 9 month old baby girl, my heart breaks for Azaylia’s parents. I’m so so sorry, she was a true warrior and she will now be your guardian Angel in heaven. Rest in peace beautiful Azaylia, thank you for helping to show millions of people around the world the true meaning of life and how it should not be taken for granted not even for a second. Sleep tight likkle lion."
As another said: "You are the most amazing parents, and with your beautiful daughter, a beautiful family. Your story has touched and broken my heart. You will meet again. Rest in peace beautiful baby girl xxx"
