Spencer Desfosses was diagnosed with Becker’s Muscular Dystrophy when he was 5 years old. He is currently 10 years old  and in fifth grade. In his words:
I am a fun-loving boy with a great sense of humor. My favorite color is green and my favorite food is popcorn. My favorite TV show is the Food Network Challenge. I like to watch that with my mom.
Every week I swim and take karate classes. I also enjoy playing my Nintendo DS and I especially love to draw! Monsters are my specialty.
I was diagnosed with Becker’s Muscular Dystrophy when I was five years old. Sometimes it can be difficult having this diagnosis but I have a great attitude and always try my best. I have a great family that helps me whenever I need it.
Spencer lives in with his Mom, Jill, step-dad, Cliff and his brother, Cameron. He attended MDA Summer Camp in 2010 for the first time and can’t wait to go back again this year.
