Dwayne Johnson tells Ashley Cain’s daughter to ‘stay strong’ amid leukemia battle

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson shared a heartwarming message with “The Challenge” star Ashley Cain’s 8-month-old daughter, encouraging her to “stay strong” amid her battle with leukemia.

In a video posted to Instagram, the “Ballers” star said he’s pulling for Cain’s daughter, Azaylia, whose family was told that she has “days to live.”

“You tell that little lion, let’s go champ and stay strong,” Johnson said. “And brother, I am so sorry to hear this news, but I don’t have to tell you that your daughter’s strength is what strengthens you and all her loved ones around her.

“And in that, she has already has had this incredible impact on the world already,” he continued.

Cain, a former UK footballer, shared the message Sunday from his own Instagram account, where he’s been chronicling his daughter’s health battle.

“I’m so proud of my little girl and so humbled by the impact she’s had on so many people around the world. From one of my hero’s to another… Let’s Go Champ!,” he wrote.

Cain revealed in a heartbreaking update on Friday that his daughter was given “days to live” in a prognosis.

“9 days ago consultants told us my daughter had 1-2 days to live, but thought she may pass that evening,” he wrote.

“Even with a barbaric disease consuming her blood, tumors in her brain and organs and amounts of pain I cannot imagine… She is still battling through 9 days later, with parts of the day with nothing but smiles despite her discomfort.”
