Product description

Review

"This is an important story about a mother's push to transform the world of biomedical research. Victoria Jackson's book is a reminder that power lives all around us, often in the most unlikely places." - Maria Shriver

"I don't read books, I'm way too busy for that, but if I did I'd read this one. Victoria Jackson is one of my closest friends and one smart strong woman. Even when she texts me I read it over and over again because it's so well written. So I feel I can say with 100% confidence if you read this book you will learn something and see why I love and admire her so much." - Ellen DeGeneres

"I once said that it takes either desperation or inspiration to transform vision into reality. THE POWER OF RARE is the gripping story of how Victoria Jackson drew from the desperation to save her daughter from a life-threatening illness and used inspiration to create a revolutionary blueprint for curing rare and common diseases alike." - Tony Robbins, New York Times bestselling author, internationally-acclaimed speaker, and peak performance expert

"In THE POWER OF RARE--an important book that paves the way to the future of personalized medicine--Victoria Jackson has given us a practical, user friendly blueprint for healing ourselves and our world." - Dustin Hoffman

"This book has everything: an uplifting, unforgettable story that sheds light on the widespread reality of 'orphan diseases', the transformational power of activist patients and parents, an empowerment manifesto that will change how you think and feel about what it means to be rare." - Sherry Lansing, CEO, The Sherry Lansing Foundation

"Victoria Jackson has been an endless source of inspiration to me. Through the power of a mother's love she has transformed the competitive world of medical research. I'm so glad she has shared her blueprint in THE POWER OF RARE so more people can benefit from her tireless efforts." - Reese Witherspoon

"I have watched for a decade as Victoria Jackson has been funding and creating circles instead of hierarchies and has brought a new and unprecedented collaboration between NMO researchers, drug companies not prone to collaboration, and otherwise isolated patients." - Gloria Steinem --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
