Eleanor Vincent

Eleanor Vincent is an award-winning writer whose memoir, Swimming with Maya: A Mother’s Story, was nominated for the Independent Publisher Book Award in 2004 and was reissued by Dream of Things press in 2013.

We can't imagine surviving it. And yet, parents do lose their children, to illness or accident, and are left to find a way back to their lives. Eleanor Vincent's 19 year old, Maya, died in an accident just as her life was unfolding, leaving Eleanor unsure if she wanted to go on at all. How did she find her way back to a life of meaning and beauty, bringing healing not only to the loss, but to other painful aspects of her life as well? In her honest and raw book, she shares her own road to a life without her daughter. Playing a part in the return to living was her decision, made from the depth of her, to donate Maya's organs. How did that help her, and also challenge her? As we talk about the loss and what came from her grief, we also gain a new perspective on what organ donation can mean, both to the recipient and also to the family that gives them the gift of life.
