It is something we wish no parents should experience – losing a child, be it in an early age or later.
There are no words to truly describe this right now, but Ashley Cain and Safiyya Vorajee are facing every parent’s worst nightmare. On Sunday, The Challenge star and his girlfriend confirmed that their 8-month-old baby girl, Azaylia Diamond, had passed away. The little girl succumbed after a battle with leukemia.
Being Diagnosed From October Last Year
Ashley Cain has revealed the horrible news of his daughter being diagnosed with this illness back in October, not long after she was born. He wrote on Instagram emotionally following her passing:
“Rest In Paradise Princess 👼🏼🌈I will always hold you in my heart until I can hold you again in heaven ❤️😢 #AzayliaDiamondCain.”
Added Vorajee in a heartbreaking tribute of her own on social media, following the loss of her child:
“You are my Angel my heartbeat my soul.”
“You will always be with me like a handprint on my heart.”
“RIP my precious baby.”
Blood Cancer – Reason Of Her Loss
This past autumn, the 30-year old reality star revealed that Azaylia had been diagnosed with a “very rare and aggressive form” of leukemia, a blood cancer.
Over the next few months, the infant went through treatments in the hospital, as Cain kept followers apprised of her condition. Tragically, they were not able to save her.

“I’ll tell you one thing, I ain’t got no plans for going anywhere this weekend,” he wrote.
“I’m an optimist. I’m a believer,” he told fans, after hearing from physicians.
“I have a positive mind frame and I know her strength and I know mine.”
Parents Everywhere Know That Feeling
In a heartfelt Instagram caption on April 23, Vorajee gave fans some insight into some of what the family was going through, emotionally and physically.
She said that when she sees her baby girl’s face first thing in the morning, her “heart instantly overflows with abundance of love for you.” She added that Azaylia’s eyes have been “intensely dry,” requiring eye drops “so her eyes can move,” and that her care is around the clock “24/7.” Just so unbelievably tragic.
The couple did everything they could for their little girl, both medically and emotionally, giving all of themselves to her throughout her life. During the two weeks the couple had their bundle of joy at home in April, they took Azaylia on walks in the area for the first time, let her play in a jumper and fed her in her high chair.
“Appreciating the day the hour and the min is something I never thought I would do as we all take life for granted.”
We send our heartfelt condolences to Ashley Cain, Saffiyya Vorajee, and their families during this unimaginable time.
May beautiful Azaylia rest in paradise.
