Project 3.8


 
 
 

At the beginning of 2016, a little boy's battle with cancer inspired the world.

 

That boy was Dorian Murray, and he'd been fighting cancer for 4 years.

 

"Hey dad, you know what I really want before I go to heaven?" Dorian said. "I would like to be famous in China."

 

His dad posted his wish online, and thousands of people from The Great Wall to Africa to Hollywood and everywhere in between snapped pictures of themselves holding signs for Dorian. Signs that said #Dstrong.

#Dstrong went global. One powerful image lit people up with the cheery yet indomitable spirit of Dorian's fight.

 

But Dorian isn't the only child fighting.

 

In the U.S. alone, more than fifteen-thousand children are diagnosed with cancer each year.

 

And now one photographer, a friend of Dorian's family who took the photo that fueled the movement, is on a mission to increase support for pediatric cancer research by capturing the faces of these children and their families — their courage and their struggles, their challenges and their triumphs.

 

Showcasing different faces of children fighting cancer — the same fight Dorian fought — is the mission of PROJECT 3.8.

THE FACES OF PROJECT 3.8

 
 

So far, PROJECT 3.8 has photographed twenty children with cancer and their families.

 

With your help, the stories of these children — the story of Dorian and any child fighting cancer — can travel far, from one state to another and even abroad, to touch hearts and rally more support for kids with cancer.

 

The portion of national cancer funding dedicated to children is just 3.8%.

 

 

Coinciding with Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, The Faces of PROJECT 3.8 exhibit will travel through Rhode Island starting september 2016, with shows continuing through November and possibly beyond.

 

Proceeds benefit the Dorian J. Murray Foundation, which works to increase support for pediatric cancer initiatives, and enable the exhibit to move forward with more shows.

 

How Far Their Faces Go Is Up To You.
