The Real-life Couple from "The Blind Side"

The Blind Side—both the #1 bestseller and the Hollywood blockbuster film starring Sandra Bullock in her Oscar winning performance—introduced the world to Leigh Anne and Sean Tuohy, the Memphis couple who were out for a Saturday morning drive when they saw young Michael Oher walking alone along the side of the road.
The Tuohy family’s life was chronicled in Lewis’ New York Times number one bestseller The Blind Side which went on to become a record-breaking Hollywood blockbuster that earned more than $200 million at the box office and the first sports film in history to have a number-one opening weekend.
Leigh Ann and Sean stopped the car that day and their chance encounter with this extraordinary young black man is now legendary. In their new book, In a Heart Beat: Sharing the Power of Cheerful Givin, the Tuohy's share the story behind the headlines detailing how Michael became a part of their life and the huge blessings that has brought to them. The Tuohy’s deeply inspiring memoir highlights how they made giving a way of life in their family long before Michael Oher, and how we can all make a difference in our own communities.
