Ashley continued, “We were told a few days ago that Azaylia would ring the bell today and come home with us as a family to resume treatment 2 days a week on an outpatient basis.
“However, 10 minutes before the time we prayed for the past 5 months… We were urgently informed that Azaylia’s leukemia had returned”
Describing the moment, Ashley added: “We collapsed and canceled the celebration as we felt broken and numb to our hearts before we saw her beautiful face tell us, the show has to go on and then we realize how far our little girl has come and how much she deserves this moment
