In case you missed it, the Rhode Island General Assembly will honor 8-year-old Dorian Murray of Westerly today with a resolution proclaiming Wednesday, Jan. 20, 2016, as “#DSTRONG Day.”

Dorian, who has been diagnosed with rhabdomyosarcoma, a rare untreatable cancer, is scheduled to attend the session as a guest in both the House and Senate chambers for the reading of the proclamation.

Dorian has become a worldwide sensation, with #DSTRONG signs popping up around the globe following a viral campaign to tell his story of determination in the face of adversity.
