Melissa Murray is the beloved mother of Dorian J Murray. She was raised in Westerly, RI where she still resides today. She attended the Community College of Rhode Island to obtain her Accounting degree in 2003. She made great strides with her degree and became a financial professional for over a decade. Melissa became a mother when Dorian was born in 2008. Her most important job, second to motherhood, started shortly after Dorian's 4th birthday when he was diagnosed with Stage IV Alveolar Rhabdomyosarcoma cancer in 2012. She became Dorian’s fulltime caregiver, staying by his side throughout his four year battle. During Dorian’s fight Melissa was determined to share his story with the world in an effort to shed a light on this devastating disease and the chaos it brings to the families affected.
