As this never happened before. Mother stated, “That’s really weird because it’s never happened before. It just kept going off”.

But after further examinations, the doctors found that the tumour had spread to the other parts of Imani’s body. After which she had to undergo surgery to remove the cancer. Luckily everything turned out fine after the surgery.

Kitchen told the daily that the Watch has been a life saviour for her daughter. Adding that without the watch she could have taken Miles to the hospital much later. That would have been fatal for her. “If [the watch] didn’t go off, I probably would have just waited and taken her in the next couple of days,” Kitchen commented to the local publication. She even said that if Imani did not have the watch, it might have turned worse.
