Ashley Cain's infant daughter Azaylia has being taken to hospital to have a platelet transfusion by her concerned parents.

Safiyya Vorajee explained the procedure was necessary to prevent the eight-month-old "bleeding out" as her leukaemia progresses.

Little Azaylia was diagnosed with a rare form of the disease when she was eight weeks old and doctors told her parents she could only have "days to live".

Safiyya and her partner, Ex On The Beach star Ashley Cain, have been documenting their daughter's illness on social media.

On Tuesday the doting mother shared a clip on her Instagram stories where she updated her followers with the latest news.

Azaylia can be seen lying down on the sofa in the background, with a cold towel on her eyes to help with the swelling.

Safiyya said: "Just got ready now, time to take Azaylia to the hospital to have her platelet transfusion done.

"She's having her eye packs on to bring the swelling down on her eyes at the minute."

After spending much of her short life in hospital undergoing multiple intensive treatments in a bid to save her life, Azaylia is now being mostly cared for at home.

With no idea of how long they have left with their only child, her parents are concentrating on making memories.

They are also doing their best to keep her as comfortable as possible.

Earlier on Tuesday, Ashley explained he was using a cold compress to ease swelling on his daughter's face.

The doting dad could be seen gently dabbing her eyes with a folded up towel, as the tot lies down on the sofa.

He wrote alongside it: "Cold compressing constantly to reduce the discomfort and swelling around her eyes.

"Every second of the hours on hours of doing this is worth it when she opens her eyes even for a few minutes," he said alongside a red heart emoji.
