Lexi Brown is a 12 year-old girl who has been battling cancer since July of 2014. After winding up in a hospital room overlooking the Sigma Alpha Epsilon House at the University of California, Los Angeles, something happened that Lexi and her family were never expecting.
Independent Journal Review reported that Lexi and her mom put up a sign in the hospital window asking for pizza as a way of forgetting about her illness. The men of SAE ended up seeing the sign, and they decided to take action.
“Five guys come in, and they had a guitar and dozen roses and a box of pizza,” Lexi’s mother Lisa said. “They introduced themselves and said, ‘We saw your sign; we’re here.’ They stayed for a half an hour, they sang this song and I started bawling my head off. I’m like, ‘I can’t believe these people are here for my child.’”

“I texted my teammates and they all stepped up to the plate to visit her,” SAE member Chase Gasper recounted. “Everyone who got to know her was really moved. It was an incredible experience and we really want her to get through this.”
