WASHINGTON, D.C. (WKBW) - Buffalo Bills Hall of Fame Quarterback Jim Kelly is headed to Washington D.C. tomorrow to ask Congress to support a new bill that would bring better newborn screening to hospitals across the country.

The event is called the Hunter's Hope Family Symposium, named after Kelly's son Hunter, who died from Krabbe's disease in 2005.

Kelly will be joined by Congressman Chris Collins on his trip to the nation's capital.
