Justin DeCross of Rochester was diagnosed with Duchenne muscular dystrophy at a young age.

Up until now, this diagnosis would have meant he would have little chance to live into adulthood.

But by combining physical therapies and medications, DeCross has become an exception to previous outlooks.

DeCross is now actively planning his life beyond his 20s and his career after college.
