PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - An 8-year-old Rhode Island boy with terminal cancer whose final wish was to become famous in China is getting his own license plate.

The state Division of Motor Vehicles says it will host Dorian Murray and his family at its Wakefield branch on Wednesday.

Administrator Walter Craddock plans to give the Westerly boy a commemorative “DStrong” license plate.

Dorian has a rare and untreatable form of pediatric cancer. He was diagnosed when he was 4. Recent tests found his cancer has spread to his spinal fluid and brain.

The boy told his family he wanted to be famous in China before going to heaven.

His father’s Facebook post describing the wish spread to China and across the globe, and DStrong became a trending social media topic.
