    As you may know, Dr. David Whiteman is very active in supporting Breast Cancer care, research, and prevention. He has started many support groups for his breast reconstruction patients, but he has also been an active member in the research and prevention group called The Sport of Giving, a 501(c)(3) non-profit who recently finished up their big fund-raising tournaments for the spring. Since its inception in 2001, Dr. Whiteman and Southern Plastic Surgery proudly became a sponsor for their activities as well as being the Medical Advisor on their Board of Directors.

    Starting with their kick-off celebration, The Pink Party, The Sport of Giving began hosting their three big tournaments: Volleyfest (Tennis), Swingfest (Golf), and Runfest (5k run/walk). All of these proved a great success, bringing in an estimated $175,000 from participants willing to support Breast Cancer care, research, and prevention. The money raised is going towards a variety of tools and services to better serve patients suffering from Breast Cancer in the Duluth and other Atlanta area cities.

    From all of us at Southern Plastic Surgery, we want to wish the best of luck and extend our most sincere thanks to the efforts put forth not just by The Sport of Giving, but all those who selflessly participated and donated in their activities this year!

Roberts had just received a cancer diagnosis, and her journey was beginning.
