Heather Jackson is the co-founder and CEO of the Realm of Caring Foundation, an internationally acclaimed non-profit primarily serving families who use cannabis that are dealing with life-limiting and chronic health conditions. The number of people her organization has served has grown 7000% since 2013. Her WHY is her family.

Her mantra is to end the day with no potential left in it and to smile until your face hurts. Her humor, social enterprising ethics, and vision have paved the way for 1000’s to improve their quality of life. Heather’s work has been featured on Dateline, New York Times, National Geographic, TIME, Good Housekeeping, 60 Minutes Australia, CNN with Sanjay Gupta and more.

Realm of Caring

When there’s a mother’s will, there’s a way, and this mother, Heather Jackson, stops at nothing to get help for her son, Zaki. Since the age of four months old, Zaki has suffered from catastrophic and nearly constant epileptic seizures. One failed treatment after the next, Heather’s sense of hopelessness is transformed to optimism when she is introduced to cannabinoid oil, a medicinal derivative of marijuana. This controversial treatment finally allows her to truly meet her son for the first time seizure-free. This amazing change in Zaki inspires Heather to start the advocacy group Realm of Caring to make this life-changing medicine available to the world.
