Seneca Falls, NY – September 16, 2017 – Victoria Jackson is now an inductee into the National Women’s Hall of Fame. As Co-Founder of The Guthy-Jackson Charitable Foundation, this honor comes in recognition of her distinguished achievements as an entrepreneur, innovator, author, and philanthropist.

Victoria Jackson revolutionized the beauty industry in the 1980s and 90s with her “no make-up” approach to make-up and ultimately made Victoria Jackson Cosmetics into a billion-dollar global brand. But her greatest test of the power of rare didn’t come until her daughter, Ali, was diagnosed with neuromyelitis optica, or NMO—a rare, life-threatening autoimmune disease. Driven by a mother’s love, Victoria, set out to find a cure for her daughter. Within days of hearing Ali’s diagnosis in 2008, Victoria began The Guthy-Jackson Charitable Foundation to fund medical research into this often-misdiagnosed orphan disease. This revolutionary “blueprint” calls for breaking down the so-called silos of traditional medical research and bringing together some of the greatest minds to collaborate and share their findings. She hadn’t expected to galvanize how medical research works, but within only a few years, she did just that. By focusing on the “rare” in each of us, the foundation has catalyzed breakthroughs in NMO in record time. These advances are also opening new doors to solving MS, lupus, and other autoimmune diseases — plus diseases that are not so rare—including cancer, infection, aging and more. It has been Victoria’s guiding philosophy that if she can do it, anyone can.

With her new book THE POWER OF RARE: A Blueprint for a Medical Revolution (September 26, 2017; villabella press; hardcover; $25.95), she shares how the foundation created a revolutionary model to speed discoveries that help empower patients and save lives. Through her business savvy, wit and heart, she offers real-world advice and inspiration for others to tap into “rare” to empower their own breakthroughs. This inspiring true story tells how one woman’s refusal to accept her daughter’s diagnosis of the rare disease NMO led to harnessing the “Power of Rare” and the creation of a blueprint for a global cure movement to solve 21st-century diseases—a user’s manual of lessons that anyone can put to work.
