An 8-year-old boy diagnosed with terminal cancer doesn't know how much time he has left, and he's only got one wish.

"I'm just thinking, before I go to heaven, to try to be famous as much as I can," Dorian Murray said.

People all across the world are helping the Rhode Island boy get his wish.

Dorian said really wants to be famous in China "because of the Great Wall."

In response, people plastered his "D-Strong" logo on the wall and Kung Fu Panda even sent him a photo greeting.

Now, people from all over the world are sharing photos to help grant Dorian's wish - including comedian Conan O'Brien and singer Lance Bass from pop boy band NSYNC. He even got a visit from New England Patriots' tight end Rob Gronkowski.

This past weekend, more than 2,500 people in his hometown of Westerly got together on a beach and spelled out "#D-Strong" and formed a heart.

When asked why he wants to be famous, Dorian said: "Then I can get all the girls."

According to the Facebook page "Praying for Dorian," he was diagnosed with stage-four cancer when he was 4- years-old and he is now fighting a relapse.
