(News24) – The events of that fateful day in 2017 keep replaying in his mind’s eye.

The emergency phone call from his son’s friend telling him Ruan had been badly hurt and wasn’t breathing. His own shock at seeing his son’s motionless body in the Mediclinic Gariep Hospital in Kimberley, Northern Cape.

An accident has stripped him of all his dreams for his son, says Rynand Joubert. Ruan was involved in a motorbike accident in July 2017, which left him with a severe brain injury.

The prognosis is dire: Ruan (21) will never completely recover from his brain injuries, doctors told Rynand.

But the Jouberts aren’t ready to give up hope. CONTINUE
