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.
Three weeks later, Junaid shows no signs of slowing down on his life. He is as strong and vibrant as ever and was even seen riding a bicycle up and down his street on Sunday.
His grandmother Margaret is calling Junaid's defiance a miracle, while his mother Monique prays that her son's fight and zeal for life continues. She adds that her husband and Junaid's dad is in prison, and is hopeful that Junaid will still be alive when his dad is released next month.
