Erin Ryder of "Destination Truth" and Ping Pong Productions totally surprised me by sending me a thank you package in the mail, which I received on March 26th, 2011. HERE is a video & after the page break is a small photo gallery. Please note - the pin that says "DT Fan" on it is one I had made in 2009, not something Ryder sent me. I have tried without success to make more, but due to copyright issues, cannot.
Below the page break are some photos Tricia, Sean's mom, gave me to share with everyone -
During March of 2011, Josh Gates went down to Florida through the Make-a-Wish organization to meet one of his fans, Sean, who lives with DiGeorge Syndrome. Here is their story, from what Sean's mom wrote to me:
"Sean likes all the people, cultures, food and the fact that Josh and the DT Teams are so funny. He thinks when they look for ghosts is scary and worries about Ryder and Jael being scared. Loves all the places that Josh and the DT Team travel to. His most favorite place was Ireland and loved hunting the Banshee on the live telecast and that is was fun, scary and that he got tired doing that....Sean loves all the crazy driving that goes on and the fact that they always have car trouble. When Josh goes crazy driving that reminds him of his Grandpa and he get's to laughing. Make A Wish was an awesome experience for Sean. Meeting Josh was top of his list and he has been smiling every day since Wednesday and was so happy to talk with Josh about his future career in the Film and T.V. Industry. We all as a family enjoyed our day with Josh."
Check out the blog Sean's mom, Patricia, runs about Sean's illness HERE and check out where you can buy a book she wrote about her son HERE. The photo gallery of their meeting with Josh is HERE.
The whole reason why this site was made. This blog contains either photos and stories of fan encounters contributed word for word by the fans themselves, or in general, photos and descriptions of who we are. Why? Because we're THAT awesome!
