I saw one of these all-terrain wheelchairs at the courthouse in Austin, TX. I freelance paralegal work from time to time, so I keep one toe in the legal community.  It was really cool.

The lady in the chair was older and had a crippling disability but there she was in front of the courthouse balanced on two wheels with the front two wheels of the chair up in the air and she was playing a game on a hand held device.

“I wish Xzavier had one of those.” I told my client.  I had already chatted her up about Xzavier and the X files and the importance that these kids stop using their phones while on the road.

Then I found the Independence group that is helping disabled Veterans get All Terrain Wheelchairs.  It makes a difference to them.  They can have freedom to go outside and play wherever, not just on the sidewalks or parked in the grass.  These chairs enhance the experience of the outdoors and thus, the feeling of being alive and the feeling of independence, “I can go anywhere!”

I brought this up with Valetta and she said they have a more immediate need to get a new wheelchair accessible van.  The one they are in now is not running so good and Xzavier hits his head coming and going on the ceiling of the van.

Xzavier Davis-Bilbo is paralyzed from a distracted driver and restricted from following his football dreams.

People, we have power.  If you have been following the Story of X, they call him X, and you wish that Xzavier had one of these All Terrain Wheelchairs too, donate directly to Valetta.

You can send money to her post office box or you can donate in person at any Educator’s Credit Union nationwide. Tell them you want to donate to the X-Man Foundation in care of Valetta Bradford.

Or you can donate on-line through Valetta’s YouCaring fundraiser page.  YouCaring.com is a site we are trying out for the first time.  It was easy to post the information on their site and they are set up for an automatic connection to either WePay or PayPal.  We chose WePay because PayPal was not helpful to Valetta when she called in, however they did help her set up PayPal through her private email if you prefer to donate by contacting Valetta directly.  Just friend her on facebook and then ask her to send you an email.  Here is the link to donate on line through YouCaring;
