A mother from Australia is being flooded with support from around the world after she shared of video of her 9-year-old son Quaden to social media.
The video shows her son, who has dwarfism, having a breakdown over being constantly bullied at school over his height.
“I’ve just picked my son up from school, witnessed a bullying episode, rang the principal, and I want people to know – parents, educators, teachers – this is the effect that bullying has,” Bayles said in the Facebook Live video.
Quaden even mentions he wants to die because of the incessant bullying.
The video went viral, being viewed more than 5 million times and now Quaden is receiving support from his community. Quaden has even been invited to lead out the Indigenous All Star team of the National Rugby League out onto the field this weekend in support.
A GoFundMe was also started to raise money to send Quaden to Disneyland and quickly surpassed the goal of $10,000 in a matter of hours.
