WPIX 11 was really awesome to drop in and interview Elisa Seeger at her business INDIAN LARRY MOTORCYCLES and put a segment up the other night on the news, including Senator Adams who's also been a driving force to help us get AIDAN'S LAW passed. It is still an uphill battle but we are prepared to go all the way. If you're here now watching this video we hope you're down with the POSSE and supporting this to become a reality.

Click on the video below to see the segment, and we invite you to share it on your Facebook or Twitter by pressing the small icon on the bottom right corner the video when you're finished watching.

Brooklyn family fights to pass ‘Aidan’s Law’ which would require screening newborns for rare brain disorder ALD

Elisa and Bobby Seeger’s 7-year-old son Aidan died from the horrific disease. They want to prevent other families from suffering from same hardship.

Aidan Seeger, 7, passed away on Apr. 29, 2012 after a long and painful battle against ALD, or adrenoleukodystrophy.

The family of a Brooklyn boy who passed away from a rare brain disorder is fighting to make sure no other child faces the same fate.

Elisa and Bobby Seeger are pushing for the New York Senate to pass "Aidan's Law," a bill that would require the state to screen newborns for adrenoleukodystrophy - or ALD - the disease that took the life of their 7-year-old son Aidan. And the family wants both Albany and Washington, D.C. to pay attention.

"My son lived his whole seventh year, 10 months, in the hospital," Elisa said. "I don't want to hear of another boy suffering."

Aidan was a first-grader at Public School 154 in Windsor Terrace when Elisa and Bobby noticed that he was struggling to read.

"Everybody just kept saying 'nothing's wrong,'" said Elisa, who took Aidan to a series of doctors before he was finally diagnosed with ALD, a rapidly advancing disorder that destroys nerve cells.

BROOKLYN BOY FIGHTS RARE BRAIN DISORDER THAT DESTROYS NERVE CELLS

Aidan got a successful bone-marrow transplant at Duke University Hospital in North Carolina on his 7th birthday. But his physical and mental condition continued to deteriorate. He slowly lost his ability to see, eat and speak until he died April 29.

There is no cure for ALD, but if caught early, children can undergo a bone-marrow transplant and lead relatively normal lives.

Aidan Seeger underwent a bone marrow transplant on his seventh birthday. Pictured is Aidan with his sister Sienna, now 6.

Aidan's Law, if passed, will add ALD to the list of more than 40 conditions New York hospitals screen for in newborns.

"This really will be a public win if you think of it in terms of what it costs to screen for ALD versus what it costs to treat," said Amber Salzman, president of the Stop ALD Foundation.

Doctors at the Kennedy Krieger Institute estimate that the ALD screening will cost $1.50 per child or $375,000 per year in New York — "a drop in the bucket," Elisa said.

The family — which owns the Indian Larry's  Motorcycles shop in Williamsburg — has received an outpouring of support from the nearly 20,000 members of Aidan's Facebook page and a group dubbed "Aidan Has a Posse." The rock band Buckcherry, model Tyson Beckford and several big-name street artists are among members.

But the determined Brooklyn mom is seeking even wider support. She took her fight for Aidan's Law to Washington earlier this month, where a federal committee denied adding ALD to its list of recommended newborn screenings in favor of waiting until a clinical trial testing the procedure ends in Sept. 2013.

"This is human life we're talking about it," said Elisa. "How many children will be born with this disease by then?"

Her goal now is to sit down with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo to have him sign the bill into law.

Gov. Cuomo's office says they are currently reviewing the legislation.

"With this one signature, he can save these lives," Elisa said. "The only way now to save these lives is to require newborn screening. It's their only chance."

‘Aidan’s Posse’ has honored Aidan with a series of artworks that have been displayed across New York City, including a massive billboard on Broadway and South 8th St. in Brooklyn.

WHAT IS ALD?

Adrenoleukodysptrophy, or ALD, is a rare genetic disorder that quickly destroys the brain. About 1 in 17,000 people in the U.S. suffer from ALD, which mainly affects males.

Nearly one-third of people with the disorder develop the childhood cerebral form that appears between ages 4 to 8.
Common symptoms of the childhood form include abnormal aggression, memory loss, hyperactivity and vision loss, according to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke.

Death usually occurs within 1 to 10 years once symptoms surface. But if detected early, the childhood cerebral form of ALD is usually treated with a bone marrow transplant.

WHAT DO NEWBORN SCREENINGS LOOK FOR?

Newborn screening criteria varies by state.

Within days of birth, babies born in New York are tested for more than 40 conditions including blood diseases such as sickle cell anemia, infectious diseases including HIV, genetic conditions such as cystic fibrosis and potentially deadly metabolism disorders.

Other states’ screening depend on facilities and resources.

Hospitals do the tests by collecting a tiny sample of blood pricked from a baby's heel.

Sept. 17th Blog Update 2012


I was emailed this, and it was cool to find I was included even though I wasn't part of the MADE team or their projects. My brief cameo comes at 1:10 of this video.

I'd like to tip my hat to the late Tony Goldman who is directly responsible for all of this stuff happening these last few years in Miami. I was never involved directly with him, but went down on a conquest of my own. This year will be my 3rd year in a row painting in the Wynwood District. I'm curious how this winter's Art Basel Miami will result without Tony being around. RIP Tony.

BIG ASS GHOST FILLIN.

Saturday, September 15th, 2012

Sept. 15th Blog Update 2012

This in my opinion is one of the more memorable NYC photos that I see pop up regularly year after year, simply for the magnitude of it, and the time. There was no monster fat caps, or 2 foot tall cans of silver to blast this out in 10 min. with one in each hand zig zag filling along as you go...   So understanding that, it was just a giant fill in on the line ( the 7 line if I'm not mistaken) that has always stood out to me as just classic NYC history.  This was also tied into one of New York's most notorious wars btwn. Ghost and MQ,  so the story behind this hit Im sure goes deeper than just this picture.  Usually things of this nature start out as a fillin, then another over top, then the other guy goes alil' bigger and someone goes huge, etc etc.... so for a daily on your way to work commuter who's keeping track of the beef out the window, it's exciting to watch things go down....

Anyways, enough history lesson or me acting like I know what I'm talkin' about...   So I asked Ghost about this specific spot once, he told me something about stealing a giant ladder I think from a hospital or building basement( I don't remember exactly) and walking it through the turn style one night, taking this giant ass ladder on the train, people where looking at them like "what the fuck are you doing with that on the train?"  they ( I don't remember who else he was with)did the spot and when he went back the next day to get pics he saw the guys come out the door upstairs and it went something like "I'm taking picks of this"  ( broad day light on the tracks) and left....

Just the MTA workers hangin' out in the flick only adds to the gangsterness of this picture. NY was a different animal back then, clearly.......  From all the legends I've hung out and painted with over the years, I've always been intrigued by the stories with the themes of people  either pulling out bats, guns, knives and trying to kill someone , or the complete opposite where they said " yeah, rock and roll!" gave a thumbs up and people just kept painting.  RIP Old NYC.

go here or kill yourself  COUSIN FRANK

Aug. 19th Blog Update Pt. 2

Today's Miami Harald has an article about creative types congregating into areas and basically building back up places that where either thought to be too far gone, or just not worth investing in.. The publisher Richard Florida( last name being pure coincidence) chose to be photographed in front of my  BRAINLINGTON Character at an intersection in the middle of the Wynwood Arts District to represent his theme of the area, which I also last week signed a release form for a new BRAVO TV Show called "Gallery Girls" to walk in front of the same mural in their Miami Episode as they felt it embodied the the theme of their Art Basel Miami experience perfectly.   To read the Miami Herald article in full CLICK HERE
