Family of Fighters

Words can not express a mother's love for her child. Can you imagine being told you are going to outlive your daughter??

The Hamilton family have given their all to support 9 year old Mileka through her fight with cancer. Mother, Samantha, has give up work to give full time support and all the family's available energy and resource has gone into making sure that the short life Mileka has left is filled with happiness.


An aspect of sacrifice has come from older sister Caelan. With finances tight and all the focus being on Mileka, Caelan has stopped participating in sport to contribute to the life of her sister. But the time has now come for Caelan to get active again and follow a passion of hers. Watch the story of how Caelan is drawing inspiration from her sister to be the best person she can be and using sport as a tool to achieve that. The Waterboy want to thank sponsors Varicool for jumping on board with their support as soon as they heard about the Hamilton situation. We have also been kindly supported by the lovely folk at Branderson Homes Ltd.
