"We got told a few days ago that’s Azaylia would be ringing the bell today and coming home with us, as a family to resume treatment 2 days per week as an outpatient.

"However, 10 minutes before the moment we have been praying for over the last 5 months… We got urgently informed that Azaylia's leukemia had returned."

Ashley and Safiyya made the decision to still let their daughter ring the bell despite her battle not being over as they realised "how far" Azaylia has come and filmed the emotional moment.

He continued: "We crumbled and cancelled the celebration as we felt broken and numb to the core before seeing her beautiful face telling us, the show must go on and us then realising how far our little girl has come and how much she deserves this moment.

"She has battled against the odds, she has overcome every obstacle in her path and she has done it all with remarkable spirit and the biggest smile on her face!

"For now we are enjoying precious moments at home until we return to hospital on Friday! Thank you for your support and please keep our beautiful daughter in your prayers!"
