Ashley Cain's Go Fund Me page for his daughter Azaylia has reached and surpassed it's goal of £1million in just 16 hours.

The 30 year old welcomed his seven month old daughter with girlfriend Safiyya Vorajee last August, with her horrifically battling the cancer since birth.

Ex On The Beach star Ashley's baby girl recently underwent a bone marrow transplant and, last week, received test results to see if the procedure had worked, but shared the tragic news that it had been ineffective.

Now, the doting dad has set up a Go Fund Me page with a high aim of getting £1million to cover her expenses for an expensive treatment based in Singapore, after being left with "very few options".

Alongside their accommodation, the total cost of the trip and treatment would be "in excess of 1 million pounds with an initial deposit of £500,000 just to be accepted into the hospital and onto the program."

Writing a lengthy statement on the page, the star explained his daughter's history of battling cancer, from being diagnosed with AML leukaemia at the young age of eight weeks, to her recent full relapse which has forced her to undergo her fourth round of chemotherapy.

"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 Azaylia’s life is to fly to Singapore for CAR-T therapy plus a haplo transplant, for a minimum period of 1 year," he wrote.

"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."

He then said he and his girlfriend Saffiya are "on our knees asking for help" before assuring his fans that he will donate any extra money to other children and families in the same situation as themselves.

In an incredible turn of events, the page has already raised £1million, with over 74,000 people donating between £5 and £10,000 each.

So far, the family have raised £1,035,710, with more donations continuing to pour in to give Azaylia a fighting chance at life.
