Cumberland is "DStrong" Cumberland School Department salutes Dorian Murray

The Cumberland School Committee and the Superintendent of Schools showed their support for Dorian Murray at their most recent School Committee meeting.

"What he is doing, in bringing attention to this terrible disease, is just amazing," Superintendent Robert Mitchell said. "We're proud of him. His courage, the lessons he is teaching us all, is something unbelievable."

Dorian, who is diagnosed with a rare, untreatable cancer, has become an international phenomena. In recent weeks, people all over the world have shown their support for him with #DStrong signs and more.
