Mayor Tom Barrett is an advocate for walking as exercise so after the public address the mayor joined Xzavier, his family and the attendees for a ten block ‘Walk for Awareness’ an event his mother hosts every year to educate drivers to the dangers of distracted driving.

Xzavier Davis-Bilbo was awarded a proclamation of 'Xzavier Day' by the City of Milwaukee and a citation by the State of Wisconsin for his work in the 'It Can Wait' campaign and the 'Don't text 4 X' campaign on October 11th of 2014

Xzavier was presented with a citation by the State of Wisconsin and a proclamation of ‘Xzavier Day’ on behalf of the City of Milwaukee for his work in the ‘It Can Wait’ campaign and the ‘Don’t text 4 X’ campaign.  Xzavier is nine years old.

The fundraiser failed to cover the expenses of the event.  A couple of days later an attendee of the event presented Xzavier with a new X-Box with 15 games.  Thank you Cindy.

And another vendor supplied Xzavier with a replacement wheelchair lift to his home.

Xzavier and his mother Valetta Bradford still rely on public transportation to get to other events while campaigning against distracted driving with an emphasis on texting.

Xzavier is important.  The Story of X is the most powerful tool we have at this time to change attitudes about using cell phones while behind the wheel of a vehicle.

Xzavier and his mother Spokeswoman Valetta Bradford did not go quietly into the restricted zone.  They came through the nine surgeries it took to save Xzavier’s life and Valetta says she never wants another parent to go through what she has been through. Together this mother and son team visit schools and events to warn drivers against distracted driving with an emphasis on texting.

Xzavier Davis-Bilbo attended the premiere of 'From One Second to the Next' by Werner Herzog in Hollywood California

Their appearance on the PSA sponsored by AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon inspired legendary director Werner Herzog to film the documentary ‘From One Second to the Next’.

Xzavier even attended the premiere in Hollywood with the help of his mom, sister, and Super Nurse.

Xzavier and his family traveled to New York to appear on ‘The Katie Couric Show’ along with Super Nurse.  Xzavier’s respirator has to be monitored 24/7 so he requires round the clock nursing.  His mother Valetta is his primary caregiver.  She left a managerial position in corporate America to make sure Xzavier is not institutionalized.

Every year on or near the anniversary that Xzavier was injured, his mom Valetta has hosted a ‘Walk for Awareness’ to educate drivers to the dangers of distracted driving.  The Story of X is the most powerful tool we have at this time to combat the pervasive attitudes that it is okay to use cell phones from behind the wheel even though distracted driving is as dangerous as drunk driving.

Please join us on October 11th in person at the corner of 10th and North streets in Milwaukee, WI between 1:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m.

If you can’t make it to Milwaukee, we invite you to skype in with your group, book club, motorcycle gang, bowling team, karaoke circle, business, family, or mayor.  If you would like to sing Xzavier a song for his day, you will have to send an audition tape over to Valetta.

Xzavier Davis-Bilbo on Easter morning 2014

Xzavier must have mounds and mounds of presents for ‘Xzavier Day!’  Please send your unwrapped gifts to;

Valetta Bradford
PO Box 06061
Milwaukee, WI 53206

Xzavier needs a new Playstation and/or an X-Box because these games were stolen from the family while they were filming the interview on ‘The Katie Couric Show’.

Xzavier loves ‘The Green Bay Packers’ so any item with their logo on it will please him tremendously.

I would like to see Xzavier receive a vintage Nintendo with the game ‘Banjo and Kazooie’.  I’m that Lady down in Texas and I am also disabled at the hands of a distracted driver so I am depending on one of you dear readers to send this over to Xzavier.  You would really make my day but we are putting this together to make ‘Xzavier’s Day’ and what we can use the most is capital.  Please donate on-line at this link;
