Woman Of The Week: Whitney Cerak

In March 2010, Whitney Cerak ironically married in the same church that her funeral was held at years earlier. Whitney had been misidentified as her best friend and was pronounced dead after a car crash in 2006. In reality, it was her friend who had died while she lay in the hospital, unable to communicate for weeks. The tragic mistake came to light once she was able to write her name down. Just last month, Whitney and her husband gave birth to their first child, a boy. Out of this tragedy came hope and a new life. Whitney Cerak is this week’s “woman of the week”.
