SYMRNA TN., – Crye-Leike, Realtors is proud to announce Tracey D. Lenfant, sales associate for the company’s Smyrna branch office, was named  ?Volunteer of the Year’ for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s Tennessee Chapter. Lenfant was honored by the Community Health Charities (CHC) of Tennessee at the annual Champions in Health Award Celebration held on February 3rd, 2009 at The Factory in Franklin.

 

“I served as the 2008 Rutherford County Great Strides Chair for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF),” said Lenfant. “With the help of families, friends, and local business owners we raised approximately $57,000, an increase of almost $28,000 from the previous year!”

 

Lenfant’s position as the Rutherford County Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Chair enabled her to tell her family’s story of cystic fibrosis and raise money to fund research for the horrible disease.

 

“My son, Tate Lenfant, suffers from Cystic Fibrosis. He is the reason and personal drive behind my volunteer efforts,” said Lenfant. “Despite his illness, pain and constant regiment of medications, Tate possesses and extraordinary outlook on life. Even at his young age of 15, his character is one to be admired. He is a true blessing from God!”

 

Cystic Fibrosis is an inherited, life-threatening disease that affects approximately 30,000 children and young adults in the United States. Cystic Fibrosis affects the lungs and digestive systems causing recurrent and often fatal pneumonia, as well as poor weight gain.

 

Research is the key to finding a cure or control for cystic fibrosis. The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF) has invested hundreds of millions of dollars to fund drug discovery and development and improve the quality of life for those with the disease.

 

“Significant progress has been made, but there is still much research that needs to be done to enhance the lives of those suffering from the disease,” said Lenfant. “When the foundation was established in 1955, children with Cystic Fibrosis were not expected to live long enough to attend elementary school. Due in large part to the CF Foundation’s aggressive investments in innovative research and comprehensive care, the predicted median survival age for people with this disease is now more than 37 years.”

 

Lenfant plans to continue raising money to fund research and help people like her son Tate suffering from the disease. She will serve as the Rutherford County Great Strides Chair for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation again in 2009.

 

“The research that has been done for Cystic Fibrosis has helped extend and enrich the quality of life for people suffering with disease,” said Lenfant. “All the research requires money and fundraising can help. I plan to continue bringing awareness about Cystic Fibrosis and find ways to raise even more money in 2009.”

 

Lenfant is a licensed Realtor with Crye-Leike’s Smyrna branch office working with buyers and sellers in Rutherford, Wilson, Williamson and Maury counties. She specializes in residential real estate focusing on first-time homebuyers and relocation. Lenfant has her professional real estate designation as an Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR). She is a member of the Greater Nashville Association of Realtors (GNAR), the Tennessee Association of Realtors (TAR) and the National Association of Realtors (NAR).

 

“My son Tate must be hospitalized several times per year, so I made a promise to him and myself years ago that we would never be apart during those hospital stays. This promise led me into the career of real estate,” said Lenfant. “Due to my own life experiences, I am able to empathize with my clients during the stresses of home buying and help them to see the bright side all in the same moment.”
