My heart goes out to Joost

Joost van der Westhuizen
We ask God for forgiveness for our shortcomings who are we to judge.

My heart goes out to Joost and his family. It was emotional to watch and I know he don't want our sympathy but I feel for him. He did our country proud he made mistakes we didn't lets pray for him and may he find peace within himself.

I sincerely hope that they can find a cure and that he will recover.

His doing so much good now and I'm glad to see some of his old buddies are still there to support him.

Carte Blanche did a great job interviewing him and allow us insight to what Motor Neuron Disease is really about.

Good luck Joost and to so many others fighting this disease.
