I became a fan of the show and Josh after the first show. I loved Ghost Hunters and am a huge fan, so I wanted to watch DT because it seemed like the same kind of show, where people trek out into the jungle, hunting down monsters and the paranormal. I live in IL, and before I had my son, I loved to travel and go on adventures. In fact, about a few months ago, I was planning a trip to Peru. Unfortunately, I was diagnosed with stage 3 ovarian cancer and could not go. Looking back on it now, I still want to go, it'll just be after my medical bills are paid LOL. I got very ill after my first round of chemo and would remain ill during the whole treatment. So much so that the doctors would put me in the hospital for a month because the radiation burned me so bad. My son, Joey, is 10. Knowing how sick I was, he talked my brother into buying me an IPod Touch. Although he took it one step firther and bought me the touch and an IPhone so I could keep in touch with my friends and family while I was in the hospital since my phone was not working at the time. Anyways, my son used all of his savings to get me the touch, and put my stuff on it. He bought all of the seasons of DT up until that time. I swear that Josh was the only thing that got me through chemo and being stuck in the hospital for a month.
I haven't met him yet, but I plan to hopefully in the near future. I just want to hug him because even in my darkest hour, where I didn't want to eat because I was throwing up, and I didn't want to go on with the treatment even though I knew that it was for the best, when I was throwing myself a pity party, I merely had to turn on my pod and Josh was there. He was like a beacon in the night, pushing me forward, wanting to go on adventures and living through him.
I have also got several people hooked on the show as well, and have people from all over going out to buy his book.
That's why I want to be considered the biggest fan of the week!
