A candlelight memorial has been scheduled for an 8-year-old Rhode Island boy whose dying wish to become famous in China reverberated around the world.

Dorian Murray died last week. The Westerly boy had been diagnosed with a rare and untreatable form of pediatric cancer.

Dorian told his father he wanted to be famous in China before he went to heaven. His father posted the wish on Dorian's Facebook page, urging people to use the hashtag #DStrong. It spread across the globe.

People from as far away as Australia sent him photos and well wishes, along with celebrities including Justin Bieber and Conan O'Brien.

Murray's parents have invited the public to celebrate Dorian's life Sunday evening at the Westerly High School track. Attendees are asked to bring their own flameless candle.
