'He moved mountains:' Baby with rare disease inspires life-saving law before he dies© Provided by Gannett Co., Inc. Bryce Harlan Clausen never walked or crawled. Never spoke a word. Barely smiled.

But in the all-too-brief 14 months of his life, the tow-headed infant accomplished something that must people never do: He inspired the passage of a bill to give others born with the disease that afflicted him a better shot at life.

Bryce died Friday, finally succumbing to the rare disease with which he was born. He passed away in his sleep, while on a family vacation to Florida, his father Joel said on Facebook.

But just weeks before he died, Bryce lay in the arms of his mother, Andrea, as Gov. Eric Holcomb signed into law a bill bearing his name that requires all infants born in Indiana be screened for Krabbe disease, the malady that affected Bryce, as well as other terminal illnesses.

"I could spend all day talking about the impact he had on this world, but it doesn't even hold a candle to the impact he had on my life, my wife, and our families," Joel wrote on Facebook. "He was the bravest, toughest, most inspiring human I have ever met, and I am lucky to call him my son. His legacy is far greater than I could have ever imagined."

Not all states screen for Krabbe disease

Only 10 other states have added Krabbe to the list of mandatory newborn screenings, among them two of Indiana's neighbors, Illinois and Ohio.

With the passage of Bryce's law, Indiana now screens for 52 conditions, 5 of them added to the roster this year and last.

There is very rarely going to be a post-mortem carried out, which means that, as a doctor, you have a think about the patient’s symptoms in the last two weeks of life or so. If I saw them in the last two weeks of life , what do I think was the most likely cause of death? There are, of course, other factors.

What will you discover? Because Brian liked… He discovered: Contemporary, Classics. “If you want to know what a man's like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals.” “To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.”

Holcomb tweeted Friday afternoon about Bryce's death, saying the infant left "a great legacy."

Had Bryce been screened at birth for Krabbe disease, his family could have sought a stem cell transplant that might have slowed or arrested the disease progress. Once the symptoms of the disease manifest themselves, it is too late for this therapy to have much of an effect, doctors say.

'He moved mountains'

For the first few months of his life, Bryce's parents had no inkling anything was amiss. At about four months of age, though, he stopped progressing and his condition continued to deteriorate as he missed milestone after milestone. His parents spent months looking for answers until Bryce was diagnosed last fall.

By then, it was too late for Bryce. At the time of diagnosis, the doctor warned his parents he would likely die before his second birthday.

His parents could not save their son but they hoped to spare others his fate. They campaigned successfully for the bill that passed both chambers of the Indiana General Assembly without a single dissenting vote.
