Dorian Murray passes away

Dorian Murray, the Westerly 8-year old cancer patient who captured hearts around the World with his #dstrong movement, passed away Tuesday night.

Family friend Kathyrn Murray posted the following on Facebook:

"To all of the amazing followers of beautiful Dorian. I am posting on behalf of Melissa and Chris due to the families difficult and emotional night.
It is with a very heavy heart that i share this news. Dorian J. Murray (?#‎dstrong?) has gained his beautiful angel wings tonight and is now pain free. He was surrounded by people who love him and his transition to heaven was very peaceful. He was embraced by both mom and dad.
We have noticed, although trying to keep it very private, that a couple people have found out and already posted on social media. We would like to ask for privacy and respect at this time. The family has been through so much heart ache and a devastating loss. Please please respect our privacy at this time. Thank you. God Bless.
#dstrong forever and always"
