"💔 Yesterday I had to go through something no parent in the world should have to go through," Cain wrote in the caption for a video taken at the hospital.

"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."
