Feel Good Story of the Week:

4-year-old Whitaker Weinburger from Virginia has been battling cancer for most of his life. Now, he’s in remission and his mother wanted to give him a very special birthday surprise.

Whitaker is obsessed with Bumblebee, the yellow Transformer. So Whitaker’s mother posted on Facebook asking neighbors and friends with yellow cars to help line their street with yellow cars to help them walk to school on his birthday. She wrote, “We want to see Whitaker experience a miracle as big as he is.”

Then it happened thanks to the power of social media and local community members. There were all sorts of yellow vehicles that showed up from firetrucks and construction equipment vehicles to a Maserati.

The story even reached Jeremy Levy, the actor who voiced Bumblebee in Transformers: Cyberverse. Levy said that he spoke to Whitaker and made him a personalized message from Bumblebee.

Not just that, some people even sent him Bumblebee inspired gifts. One came from Tesla, who donated a little yellow car customized for him.
