Ashley Cain has demonstrated his support for families whose children are suffering the same sickness that claimed the life of his own daughter.

Last April, Ashley and Safiyya Vorajee’s eight-month-old daughter Azaylia died of an aggressive type of leukemia.

The player is now bringing comfort to parents of children suffering with the same ailment.

The former Coventry City footballer, 31, and his girlfriend, 34, have become friends with a number of families, including Esha Nadeswaran’s cousins, who are five years old.

Esha was diagnosed with leukemia eight months ago and is now undergoing treatment at the Great Ormond Street Hospital in London.

Rishya, Esha’s father, told The Mirror about what Ashley has taught them.

‘There have been days when I’ve climbed up from my bed and sobbed alone.’ But, no matter how awful your day is or how heartbroken you are on the inside, Ashley reminded me that you must remain cheerful and joyful for your kid,’ he added.

He went on to say that his conversation with the singer had’really kept him going.’

Esha has been in the hospital since May 2021, undergoing chemotherapy and receiving an emergency stem cell transplant in October.

Rishya claimed that Safiyya contacted them when they began a social media donor match campaign.

‘I set up a Zoom meeting with Safiyya and Ashley, and we spoke father to father about what it’s like to be informed your kid has cancer,’ he added. It was an extremely emotional experience.’

The Azaylia Foundation helps families raise money for therapies that aren’t covered by the NHS and gives children “memorable experiences” while fighting illness.

‘Esha’s father and I spoke about savoring every minute and making sure your kid believes nothing is wrong.’ ‘You must have a good attitude and strive to be the best you can be,’ he said.
