Young Junaid Arendse initially complained of hip pain and his family took him to the hospital for examination. Doctors diagnosed him with cancer and told his family that it had spread to various parts of his body.

They also said it was resistant to chemotherapy and as a result, there was nothing they could do to help Junaid. Junaid's mother and grandmother were distraught at the news and sought prayers from their local church.
