Greenfield Calls on State Legislature to Pass Life-Saving Bill Requiring ALD Testing in Newborns

New York – Councilman David G. Greenfield held a press conference on the steps of City Hall yesterday with Windsor Terrace residents Elisa and Bobby Seeger to call on the state Legislature to pass a life-saving bill known as Aidan’s Law during its upcoming session beginning in January. The bill is named for the Seeger’s seven-year-old son, who died earlier this year following a battle with a rare genetic condition known as adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD). While there is no cure for ALD, which affects the brain and all neurological functioning, children with it can lead a relatively normal life with a bone-marrow transplant if it is detected early enough.
