The event took place in Alexandria, Virginia. One little boy named Whitaker Weinburger has had a rough go at it in life. When the boy was asked what he wanted for his birthday, he said “100 Bumblebees”.
It looks like his wish was granted, after his mother Erin posted on Facebook: “Does anyone have a yellow car, or connections with yellow cab companies, or is in media, so we can share our story and see if it’s possible to make this happen? I know this is a crazy idea, but man alive, we want to see Whitaker experience a miracle as big as he is.”
Young Whitaker has been fighting stage-4 neuroblastoma since he was just 13 months old. In celebration, the kindness of many strangers united to bring forth some wonderment to his birthday.
Whitaker is a fan of the Transformers movie franchise. His favorite character is Bumblebee, so some of the the people there decided to both dress up in costume and bring their yellow cars in honor of the young lad.
Number of yellow cars including bugs & Camaros have arrived for a special Bumblebee Transformers birthday. It’s all a big surprise for a little 4-year-old who is fighting stage 4 cancer here in Alexandria Virginia. Drivers have arrived from NY, WVA and all around the DC @ABC7GMW pic.twitter.com/EuZQ9HSAtm— John Gonzalez (@ABC7John) September 11, 2019
