‘It was Joost’s wish to see a cure’- J9 Foundation calls for donations

The J9 Foundation which was opened by late rugby star Joost van der Westhuizen has asked the public to help continue his legacy.

It’s been two weeks since Joost died, but those close to him are only just starting to pick up the pieces.

The foundation aims to help other people suffering from the disease by donating medical equipment and making sure they get proper treatment.

“We are more determined than ever to fight this horrific disease. Remember that there are people suffering everyday from it and it was Joost’s wish to see a cure, to make sure that people in this country got better treatment. So please please please continue the support so we can all continue Joost’s legacy,” read a statement shared by J9.
