Pulmonary fibrosis can occur when lung tissue becomes damaged and scarred. For some types of pulmonary fibrosis, a cause can be determined – but not for people who have what’s known as “idiopathic” pulmonary fibrosis, or of unknown cause. IPF is a progressive and irreversible lung disease[iii] that makes it difficult to breathe and even complete everyday tasks.[iv] The incidence of IPF is greater than that of ovarian cancer, similar to those of pancreatic cancer and of all leukemias combined, and nearly 30 times that of cystic fibrosis.[v]
Bob is a retiree and active family man who has a positive outlook on life. He can only physically exert himself for about 15 or 20 minutes before he needs use an oxygen tank – but he still tries to enjoy yard work or play the occasional golf game, rather than miss out on opportunities to enjoy his life.

In June 2004, Jerry was diagnosed with Pulmonary Fibrosis, an untreatable and incurable lung disease and given six months to two years to live. His doctor told him, "You have A Death Sentence and there is no Hope, ANYWHERE WORLDWIDE". Jerry began searching worldwide for a possible cure and in June 2006, found a doctor in Germany who had a lab and was willing to analyze his blood and attempt to treat the disease. After several months of research, he produced a serum using Jerry’s blood and two years later, he was cured. In June, 2008, Jerry semi-retired from real estate to write his book titled "Does God Give Us More Than We Can Bear?" In June 2010, Jerry started public speaking about his story in order to reach out to others to offer them hope whether they were suffering from childhood traumas or diseases.

Today Steve Gordon and Dana Reeves will be talking about a variety of topics, from the best cities to launch your startup, to whether or not you should drain your 401k to start your company, and if you’re having trouble figuring out what business to start, we’ll share 7 hot, but kind of wacky, ideas that entrepreneurs should consider.
They’ll also be talking with special guest, Lara Dolan, about the impact her volunteerism has had on her business and her family.
Currently a real estate agent with Keller Williams Realty Consultants, Lara specializes in residential and equestrian properties and lives here in Alpharetta with her husband and two daughters. She got her start in business with a number of sales and marketing positions with technology and consulting companies. After leaving the work force for a number of years while her daughters were young, she chose real estate as her marketplace re-entry point. Lara started her own company, Kismet Management, to help clients get through the real estate down-market by finding qualified tenants for their single-family homes, and managing those properties on behalf of her clients. In 2013, Lara sold Kismet Management and turned her focus toward traditional real estate, creating the Craft Dolan Team at Keller Williams.
In addition to work and family, Lara passionately supports the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, chairing several large fundraising events, and as a member of the Georgia CFF Volunteer Board. In 2006, family friends in New York lost their then 13-year-old daughter to cystic fibrosis. Suddenly it wasn’t enough to just write a check – and that’s when Lara’s commitment to raising money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation was born.
