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.
