CRANSTON, R.I. (AP) - An 8-year-old Rhode Island boy with terminal cancer whose final wish was to become famous in China has been given the key to Cranston.

WPRI-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1OH7YDK ) Mayor Allan Fung on Sunday presented the key to the city to Dorian Murray’s family during a “DStrong” fundraising event in the Westerly boy’s honor.

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.
