Meet Bryce U'Ren - Westfield Local Heroes 2021

Comforting children with cancer

Super Max & Bryce
aring. Dedicated. Genuine

Bryce U’Ren is a Gold Coast boy on a mission to share love, happiness and comfort with children receiving cancer treatment across Australia and New Zealand.

Bryce founded the Super Max & Bryce project, a simple yet innovative idea of gifting children with cancer a small turtle night light. The lights are fully sanitisable, providing comfort and connectedness to children and their families during one of the most isolating journeys imaginable.

At nine years old, Bryce initially aimed to give six turtles to children with cancer. Like Bryce, now 14, his project has grown. By the end of 2021, he will have gifted 5,000 turtles– making annual trips to cancer wards across Australia and New Zealand.

“I can't imagine how hard it is for children in treatment,” he says. “Because I'm afraid of the dark, I thought special night lights would make children in treatment really happy.”

When COVID-19 restrictions prevented Bryce from visiting hospitals in 2020, he and his family focused on raising awareness about children with cancer by sharing touching presentations at 15 daycare centres in Queensland.

Bryce says being nominated as a Westfield Local Hero makes him feel grateful. “I’m really grateful knowing that people in the community would consider helping us with our mission to provide comfort to superheroes in treatment.”

Westfield Local Heroes are nominated and voted for by their communities, with the three top finalists per Westfield centre each awarded a $10,000 grant for their affiliated organisation. Super Max & Bryce will use 100% of the funds to purchase approximately 400 of the 1,000 nightlights needed in 2022
