Casey Kasem case spurs proposed family-law bill

LOS ANGELES (KABC) — Ailing radio legend Casey Kasem may inspire a new law based on his children’s attempts to visit him. The legendary radio DJ has been suffering from Parkinson’s disease for years. His family has been embroiled in a battle over the right to visit him, which has prompted a state lawmaker to take action.

It’s been a frustrating court battle for Kasem’s kids. But now one of his daughters says she has new hope. Kerri Kasem says she simply wants to see her father, but is being denied by her stepmother of 33 years, Jean.”To be blocked for no reason when he needs us the most has been the hardest thing I have ever had to go through,” said Kerri Kasem. Casey Kasem signed off the air in 2009 due to Parkinson’s disease and is now hospitalized. Kasem’s kids have protested outside his home to see him and recently battled in court. ”There is nothing in the law books right now that allows a judge to adjudicate, to rule on visitation rights for children,” said Kerri Kasem.

Now Kerri is joining Assemblyman Mike Gatto (D-Los Angeles) in proposing new legislation.”Current law does not provide for any information to be given to the adult children of somebody who might be sick and elderly. We want to change that,” said Gatto. Gatto’s bill would require conservators inform relatives if someone is hospitalized for acute care, or dies, and disclose funeral arrangements and burial location. Gatto says the bill also provides “reasonable accommodations” for adult children to visit their parent. ”This is about keeping families together,” said Gatto. “I think the most important thing, of course, is to make sure that children get to see their mom or dad if that person is getting toward the end of days.” ”It’s the most important thing I’ve ever done in my life and I just hope this helps so many families that are going through this,” said Kerri Kasem.

What does the bill meant to Kerri personally? ”That there’s hope, that there’s light, and that my father would have stood up and done something about this, and he can’t, so I’m doing it for him,” said Kerri. Gatto hopes to pass this bill under what’s called “urgent status.” If so, that means it could become law by mid-summer.

Hello and thank you for taking the time to visit this page,

We can't do this without your help. There are so many adult parents across the US that are not afforded the right to to visit an ailing parent because the spouse is opposed. I am currently in the same situation and fighting legally to get visitation rights to see my ailing father, Casey Kasem, despite the fact that he has expressed his desire to see me and my brother and sister.

My personal legal issues and associated costs aside, I have setup a non-profit organization, the KASEM CARES foundation, to raise money much needed through donations to sponsor legislation so that no other loving adult child has to go through the staggering personal expense in court to see an ailing parent. Unfortunately, in many cases, the children did not have the money or resources to fight for visitation and it became too late.

Donations go directly to the efforts of sponsoring this legislation. PLEASE join us in funding this effort to pass this law. Any amount is helpful, appreciated, and very needed.

THANK YOU, Kerri Kasem

Am in a similar situation and am wondering if any one out there, has any ideas. I have gone a year and a half without being able to see or talk to my ailing 87 year old father.

I lost my Mom and Dad early in life and my mammaw raised me. She passed this year at 88 years old. I hope and pray everyday that this bill passed for the lucky ones who still have their parent (either one) living. So sad she is being so hurtful to you all. She is a very sad, selfish person. You have my vote and wish you the best for you and you siblings. Love always Lisa B. Thank you for sharing such personal things with all of us on FB, Twitter, Instagram, etc. You will get to see you father again I have faith. Don't lose that or she will win.

"Uncle Kemal" was an integral part of my childhood. The good memories times past forever remain in my heart. His pride and love for each of you, his dear children-Kerri, Julie & Mike, never diminishes, but surely grows stronger at this time and sustains him. It is heart warming to know you remain true to your values, family and culture! God will bless you all-ways and you will be rewarded for your unwavering love. "Little Renee"
