She went on to share another personal video, discussing how she’s been struggling to keep it together: ‘This morning it’s took me absolute ages to get my head, my confidence, my everything together.

‘It’s this time of the year I’ve got mother’s day, got Azaylia’s anniversary coming up, literally just takes me’

A teary Safiyya continued: ‘These thing’s coming up are literally just throwing me back

‘And so many parents are out there without their children and so many children are out there without their parents as well.’

Safiyya and Ashley were always very open with their journey when their little one was sick, posting regular updates on social media, which connected them to a community of people going through the same thing.  

While most people would be overwhelmed with other grieving parents approaching them for support, Safiyya bravely revealed that she likes to help people out and lend an ear when she can. 

In a recent interview with MailOnline she said: ‘I am very happy for people to come up to me, sometimes people feel more comfortable to come to me to talk than they do their own partner or family, people can shut down a lot when they have to talk to someone that they know. 

‘I’m so glad that we shared it with the world. She was an absolute beacon of light and we got to share that with everyone. The public have been our biggest support.

‘Over 80,000 people registered to be a donor for her when she was really sick. I am so proud of my daughter and I get to talk about that and I hope that it can help others.’
