WESTERLY, R.I. (AP) - The parents of an 8-year-old Rhode Island boy with terminal cancer have set up a foundation in his name.

WPRI-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1OYdemy ) the Dorian J. Murray Foundation is aimed at bringing awareness to childhood cancer by providing emotional and financial support to families dealing with pediatric cancer.

Dorian told his family earlier this year he wanted to be famous in China before going to heaven. His father posted the wish on social media, urging people to use the hashtag #DStrong, and it spread across the globe.

Dorian’s family says his health has deteriorated and they are awaiting his “peaceful transition to heaven.” His treatment was stopped after cancer cells were found in his spinal fluid.

The family is now focused on spending Dorian’s last days by his side.
