Posted: Updated:

Kerri Kasem has been fighting to visit her dad , the legendary broadcaster Casey Kasem, who has Parkinson's disease. Kerri says she has been denied access to her dad by Jean, her stepmother of 33 years.

A new bill is being proposed that would allow children the right to visit their sick or dying parents. It's been proposed by Assemblyman Mike Gatto, who says the bill exists because of Kerri's activism.
