Lewis Hamilton dedicates Grand Prix win to young South African cancer sufferer

A dream came true this weekend when 18-year-old Klaas, diagnosed with Erwing Sarcoma, went to meet his F1 racing hero Lewis Hamilton in London.

Hamilton spent some quality time with Klaas getting to know him. He showed him around and even invited him to watch the qualifying race from the Mercedes garage.

Reach for a Dream Foundation helped set up the meeting between Klaas and Hamilton who in turn dedicated his British Grand Prix victory to the South African cancer sufferer.
