SARASOTA, Fla. -- One year ago Aidan's Law was passed in New York State. It requires newborn screening for a fatal genetic disease called Adrenoleukodystrophy, or ALD. Local parent Pete Grigsby is pushing for a similar law in Florida called Gabriel's Law, named after his son, who was diagnosed and then died from ALD Last year.

ABC 7 Scott Dennis talked to Grigsby about the disease and what changing the law could mean for those affected by the disease.
