In 2009, ESPN ran a remarkable story on Leroy Sutton and Dartanyon Crockett — the boy with no legs being carried by the boy who could not see. But their story and lives were so much more than that.
After years of heartbreak, abandonment, and betrayal, Sutton and Crockett found trust in each other and their friendship grew into a brotherhood. And when the cameras stopped rolling after five months, that family became a little bit bigger.
Lisa Fenn, the producer of the segment, was so moved by these two boys that she quit her job and stayed behind to become their mentor and mother. Or as Lisa puts it, “My heart was too heavy for my legs to walk away. Dark clouds hung over every turn of Dartanyon’s and Leroy’s lives, and I found myself pleading with the heavens to end this madness.”
Not only did the madness end when Lisa stepped in, but the story of Sutton and Crockett went from courageous and inspiring to absolutely unbelievable.
