Her mom started bawling when she saw what these SAE frat brothers did…
Sadly, 12-year-old Lexi Brown is pretty used to hospital rooms by now.
The little cancer fighter has beenin and out of treatment since last summer. But when she ended up in a room right next to the Sigma Alpha Epsilon House at UCLA, she had no idea the kind of friendship that would come from it.
NBC News reported that Lexi and her mom Lisa hung up a sign in her hospital room window requesting pizza.
What they didn’t know is that the boys of the SAE fraternity spotted the sign and decided to do something incredible for her.
Five guys come in, and they had a guitar and dozen roses and a box of pizza, Lisa says. They introduced themselves and said, We saw your sign; were here. They stayed for a half an hour, they sang this song and I started bawling my head off. Im like, I cant believe these people are here for my child.’
You know, one of our creeds is being a true gentleman, and thats following through and making sure that we can do everything we can, said SAE fraternity member Christian Wehrly.
Another member, Chase Gasper, found out that Lexi loved soccer. Because he just so happens to be on the UCLA Men’s Soccer Team, he came up with a brilliant idea:
I texted my teammates and they all stepped up to the plate to visit her, he toldIJ.com. Everyone who got to know her was really moved. It was an incredible experience and we really want her to get through this.
And that wasn’t all. The team also brought jerseys, hats, scarves and t-shirts for Lexi, AND they even surprised her with tickets to their game.
When we played our game, we kind of played with an extra edge, said Gasper. We really wanted to win for her, and we did.
The gentlemanof SAE started a tidal wave of kindness from other sports teams and organizations at UCLA. Members of the swimming, rowing and tennis teams came in to visit, as well as the Christian Campus Ministry.
But it was the boys of SAE who will always have a special place in Lexi’sheart.
Their special bond is evident as you listen to them serenade the young girl at her bedside.

Lexi recently found out that the cancer has spread into her lungs, but these guys keep going above and beyond to let her know they’re there for her.
…and now she’s reminded every time she looks out her hospital window:
The boys spelled her name in lights on their frat house to show her that she is their light. How gosh darn adorable is that?!
“They had me turn around and look at the lights, and I saw my name on the roof, she toldCBS LA. I thought it was really cool. I didnt think that that would ever happen.
They plan to keep up Lexi’ssign through the holidays to keep her spirits upbut she’s not the only one who’s been rewarded through the friendship. The SAE boys have been exceedingly blessed to meet her too, and it’s helped to put their lives in perspective.I have had a very blessed life, nothing comes close to what shes gone through. Shes such a strong girl, said Gasper.
It was an unlikely friendship that all started with a group of young menlooking into the window of one little girl’s room, and seeing how they could change her life for the better.
And so, they did.
