#DStrong

I have seen the face of courage and it belongs to Dorian Murray.

The 8 year old Rhode Island boy is battling terminal pediatric cancer according to CBS News. Murray's parents told CBS after learning that he had "cancer cells in his spinal fluid, his family made the decision to stop treatment" after more than 3 years of fighting.

But Murray has an important request. According to CBS, he told his dad "I'm just thinking before I go to heaven to try to be famous as much as I can."  Just a few days ago, the social media effort spawned into a heartwarming trend, in support of Dorian's wish. Folks as far away as China have responded, posting their pictures with #DStrong. Dorian even got to meet New England Patriots player Rob Gronkowski. 

Scrolling down the list of twitter supporters posting their photos along with #DStrong is nothing short of inspiring. Consider supporting this brave little boy's dream. All you have to do is post your picture on twitter with the #DStrong. You can watch an interview with Dorian from WPRI here. There's also a gofundme page set up to help with the medical bills with messages written by Dorian's parents.
