On Sunday Cartle Blanche got their chance to interview Joost and get a thorough look into how his life has completely changed after being diagnosed with Motor Neuron Disease, the support from his friends, his parents and the trouble he has with getting to see his children
If you didn’t catch the interview on Carte Blanche, now’s your chance, this is a must see… watch this right now!
I said it before and I’ll say it again, WHAT A LEGEND!
Following the interview on Carte Blanche social media networks such as Twitter, went absolutely ballistic in support of Joost to the extend that MNET released a statement saying:
“We did not expect such a huge response from our viewers,” Ingrid Engelbrecht, spokesperson for M-Net said. “We are thankful that Joost had a chance to share his story in a personal way.”
Joost also tweeted (yes he’s on Twitter now @9Joost) the following later that evening:
Thank you ALL for the support!!! Please live your life to the fullest and be greatfull for what you have!!!!!
