Lexi Brown, 12, is battling cancer. She has a sarcoma and it’s quickly spreading through-out her body including her lungs. Therefore, Lexi was airlifted to the Mattel Children’s Hospital at UCLA.
So obviously this hospital is right across the street from UCLA fraternity row.
One day Lexi and her mother decided to post a note on the window just to pass some time. The note asked for a pizza delivery. It was meant as a joke but what happens next is unbelievable.
Lexi’s window faced the Sigma Alpha Epsilon frat house, and when the brothers saw this note they decided to get her a pizza. Along with the pizza they got her a dozen of red roses and a guitar.
For the next half an hour, the frat brothers sat with Lexi as she lay n hospital bed. It was a delightful surprise for both Lexi and her mother. And truly a wish come true.
This soon sparked a special friendship between the brothers and Lexi. They started visiting Lexi on a regular basis. Some nights, they would stay with Lexi until midnight, breaking the hospital’s visitation rules. They often brought games to play with Lexi, and it was one of the few bright spots in Lexi’s day. And she is also lucky to have such cool neighbors.
Every year, the SAE fraternity house decorates his house in Christmas lights for the holidays. Because of their relationship with Lexi, the brothers decided to do something special for her. In bright purple lights, they spelled out Lexi’s name on their roof. Purple was her favorite color! This has literally touched my heart.
