Azaylia Cain’s mother is struggling to get out of bed following the death of her eight-month-old daughter.
Ex On The Beach star Ashley Cain and his girlfriend Safiyya Vorajee confirmed last Sunday that their daughter Azaylia had died, six months after being diagnosed with leukaemia.
Nearly a week on from Azaylia’s death, Safiyya has been candid about how she is coping, saying the pain is ‘unbearable’.
In an Instagram story post, the 34-year-old wrote: ‘Trying to get myself out of bed in the morning has never felt so hard. The pain that hits me when my eyes open is unbearable, I just want this all to have been a dream.’
Safiyya wrote in her next post: ‘1 week today this was all happening. You are so incredible Azaylia, you have changed my life.
‘Honestly I feel so proud of you, I am lost without you but I know you’re with me close all the time.’

This comes after Safiyya and Ashley paid tribute to Azaylia with a candlelight vigil.
The couple lit a candle in between two Lion King stuff toys, with Ashley, 30, writing on Instagram: ‘Tonight we lit a candle in the chapel of rest to join others in lighting up the world in honour of my beautiful daughter Azaylia.’
Azaylia had fought cancer since she was two months old, and fans and friends raised £1million to get the baby potentially life-saving CAR-T treatment in Singapore.
Sadly, more tumours were found in Azaylia’s body, meaning the treatment would no longer be possible for her.
Ashley and Safiyya took their daughter home from hospital to spend her last days at home, with family and friends visiting Azaylia and dancing with her to her favourite songs.
Her condition worsened last weekend when she suffered a seizure, and on Sunday, Azaylia died surrounded by her family.

Safiyya wrote on Instagram at the time: ‘You are my Angel my heartbeat my soul, RIP my precious baby, you will always be with me like a handprint on my heart.’
Reality star and footballer Ashley credited his daughter with saving his life, writing: ‘My heart is shattered 💔You gave my life purpose, my face a smile, filled my heart with love and my soul with pride.
‘I can’t put into words my sadness and pain, there aren’t words to describe it. I love you with every ounce of my body and I miss you so much already.
‘You made me a better man. You made me the person I’ve always wanted to be. You’ve taught me more in your 8 months than I’ve learned my whole life. I don’t know why you’ve been taken away from me and my heart aches in your absence.
‘But I promise you that your name with live on. I will carry your name across every ocean, along every road, to the top of every mountain and across the whole globe. Your name will live, your legacy will be remembered and I will seek peace in living as your vessel to continue inspiring, giving strength, spreading joy and saving lives in your name, with your spirit, as your father until we meet again.
‘You saved my life, you really did. With my second chance, I make a promise to you that I will make yours live on in our hearts, our thoughts and our prayers. I am blessed, I am honoured and I am privileged to be your father. I would go through all of the pain again and again. Because what you gave me in those 8 months will live with me for eternity.’Credit: Original article published here.
