All of us are guilty of getting the catchy song about our “bologna’s first name” stuck in our head and have memories of getting overly giddy when we saw the infamous Weiner Mobile cruising down the streets of our town. These reminiscent childhood memories are what sparked Dr. Whiteman and his wife Sheri to bid on a stuffed replica of the Weiner Mobile at this year’s Sport of Giving Silent Auction at their annual Pink Party. To their delight – they won! – and along with it, a ride on one of Oscar Meyer’s hotdog shaped vehicles. While this experience might have been a childhood dream come true, the purpose of the auction (and the exciting items that guests were able to bid on) was to make women’s dreams of cancer recovery come true. Dr. Whiteman serves on the board of directors of the Sport of Giving, a 501(c)3, nonprofit organization that raises money in support of breast cancer care and prevention in the Atlanta community. As spokesperson and medical advisor of the Sport of Giving, the breast cancer cause is very close to Dr. Whiteman’s heart. He dedicates himself to breast cancer research and education – performing breast reconstructions, devoting his time to regularly counsel breast cancer patients, and speaking to various hospitals and associations.
