Quaden (9) whose grief moved the world: ‘The best day of your life!’
A nine-year-old Australian who, due to his dwarf stature, has been the victim of bullying has come to fruition – he took to the field with his favorite rugby team.
Quaden Bayles took center stage at a major sporting event, days after an earth-shattering recording of his reaction to the bullying he was experiencing at school was recorded by his mother.
‘The best day of his life’
Celebrities have lent their support, and hundreds of thousands of dollars have since been raised as part of a campaign to send Quaden to Disneyland. The Indigenous All Stars National Rugby League team has called on Quaden to take the team to the field in a match against the Maori All Stars team.

Quaden walked proudly holding Captain Joel Tho’s hand, alone in their jersey, later saying it was ‘the best day of his life’.
How much bullying is affecting Quaden was revealed by her mother in a video she made after picking him up from school, wanting to warn everyone that the victims of peer violence and their parents are going through, and that it is necessary to deal with this topic much more than has happened so far.
