Ashley reveals daughter has leukemia, Challenge stars react

Just last Friday, Ashley Cain gave the tough news to everyone about his daughter’s health issues.

Ashley, who competed on Season 1 of MTV’s The Challenge War of the Worlds, revealed he’d learned his daughter had a rare form of leukemia.

The 29-year-old presented the unfortunate news on his Instagram page, which has nearly 500,000 fans.

“Yesterday I had to go through something no parent in the world should have to go through. The single most upsetting, terrifying and heartbreaking experience I have ever been through. I found out my beautiful daughter Azaylia Diamond Cain got diagnosed with a very rare and aggressive form of leukaemia which has come with many complications,” he shared on an Instagram video post.

The 29-year-old dad also asked for prayers for his “beautiful brave little girl” Azaylia, which brought many reality TV and The Challenge competitors to the comments.

They included Hunter, Georgia, Joss, Turbo, Paulie, and Idris, all of whom have recently appeared on seasons of The Challenge.

“I love you so much ash anything i can do to support you just let me know. Its going to be okay ????? praying for you,” Georgia Louise Harrison commented.

“Praying as hard as I can for her and your family brother!” Hunter commented.

“Saying prayers for you bro! She’s got this! She’s got that BEAST DNA! ❤️” Paulie Califiore said on the IG update.

UK competitor Theo Campbell also gave his support to Ashley and his daughter.
