If you watch Positively Milwaukee you probably remember a family whose young son was paralyzed by a driver who was texting while driving.  Valetta Bradford has been unable to afford an accessible van. Xavier Davis-Bilbo uses lives in a wheelchair and must use a ventilator to breathe..
  Well, a wonderful man, and a wonderful organization are teaming up to try and help Xavier's family get a van. Jeramy Melka is a father with a heart. He found out about Xavier's condition and is plans to hold a fundraiser to help the family. He is the head coach and owner of the Greendale Panthers Semi-Pro football team. He is teaming up with another group, that understands the pain of an injured child. Guardian Ava was formed in memory of Ava Zimmerman. 5 Year Old Ava died while crossing the street in Greendale after being struck by a distracted driver.
 Ava's aunt Christy Cool told me the family is still hurting over the pain of Ava's death. But they want to use Ava's memory to help another child. I will be sharing the details on this heartwarming venture, and how you can help in next week's Positively Milwaukee. Stay Tuned!!!
