He told fans, “Honestly, I can’t thank everyone enough, I look really tired and my eyes hurt when we found out today that one of the drugs Azaylia has. need to start treatment tomorrow, in order to get her leukemia count back down and put her into remission, is not published by the pharmaceutical companies.
“So not only today have I taken care of Azaylia, but I have gone through intense discussions with doctors, consultants and pharmaceutical companies to try to get this essential drug that Azaylia needs. ”
Ashley was then distracted by Azaylia popping the tube out of her stomach through her nose as she slept – saying it was there for a long night because she “wouldn’t like” to have another one.
The star was in tears earlier in the evening admitting he was “overwhelmed and lost for his words” after Azaylia’s fundraiser surpassed its goal in less than 24 hours.
So far nearly £ 1.4million has been raised for Azaylia and her family to travel to Singapore and receive potentially life-saving treatment for her leukemia, with an initial target of £ 1million.
