ASHLEY Cain has vowed to help children going through serious health battles like his late daughter Azaylia in a moving Instagram post.
The bereaved dad told fans he made a promise to keep Azaylia's name alive, and he won't let his heartache get in the way of doing that.
He wrote: "I wanted to take this time to give thanks for all of your love, care and support for Azaylia throughout her battle and still now for us as a family. [heart emoji].
"I am broken and hurting more and more everyday right now. [crying emoji].
"But I made a promise to my daughter that I would keep her name alive by continuing to help other children, adults and their families during their own battles and I will honour that promise until I see her again."
Eight-month-old Azaylia died last weekend after suffering from a rare form of leukaemia which spread through her body.
Earlier today her mum Safiyya said that she can't get out of bed and is in "unbearable pain" after her tragic loss.
Looking emotional and tired in a short video clip, Safiyya wrote over the top: "Trying to get myself out of bed in the morning has never felt so hard.
"The pain that hits me when I open my eyes is unbearable, I just want this all to be a dream.
"I miss you, Azaylia."
Reposting her final images taken with Azaylia, she continued: "One 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."
The heartbreaking words come one day after she and boyfriend Ashley Cain lit a candle for their little girl in the Chapel of Rest.
Ashley shared a short video that showed the red candle burning surrounded by Lion King teddy bears.
He wrote: "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."
Safiyya added on her own social media page: "Light the world Azaylia, I love you."
It was Ashley's first public post after he shared his final picture of Azaylia, in which he said that his "heart is shattered".
