Joost van der Westhuizen, the man with the startling blue eyes and
deep dimples, was everyone’s favourite Springbok rugby player.
But at the peak of his career he received the shocking diagnosis of
Motor Neuron Disease.
Now you can read his story, from his barefoot childhood days to
the end of his life. Pieter’s most precious memories with Joost are from
their childhood, where they played many tricks and were involved in
all kinds of mischief. They were partners in crime who would never
abandon each other.
From a young age, Joost vowed that he would play rugby for
the Springboks. His hard work was rewarded in 1995 when he
represented the Springboks for the first time.
It was a traumatic experience for his family to watch a strong,
vibrant Joost grow weaker before their very eyes. But their faith was
strengthened while they fought the disease with him.
