About Elaine Benton

Elaine born in 1963, England. Diagnosed at the age of five with Gaucher disease; a rare chronic inherited disorder, for which there is no cure. At the age of 44, she was dealt a second blow being diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. As her life rapidly changed, she began to write poems expressing what so many sufferers were going through but unable to put into words. With the desire to help others in the same situation, she wrote a book of poems and her latest book which is an inspiring story of her life, offering support to fellow sufferers and caregivers. Feeling she had something unique to offer, she also started writing a daily blog touching on varied topics all relating to living with chronic disease. Through writing and public speaking Elaine is turning her hardships into something of value and purpose, contributing to society by talking at various organisations and groups, now an international public speaker; her aim is to educate and inform. Elaine writes with stark honesty as she battles each day with determination, great spirit and humour.

I spent most of yesterday reading your book "A Silver Lining" on my PC and thoroughly enjoyed it. It is light-hearted, easy to read and passes over the important message that as sufferers what we lose in some ways we gain in others. We are certainly not looking for pity, only acceptance and respect. You do a great job getting our message over and I admire you for this.
