Lexi Brown is a sweet 12-year-old girl who is going through a difficult time. A sarcoma has formed in her body and now spread to her lungs. Because of her illness, Lexi had to spend time at the Mattel Children’s Hospital UCLA in California… which happens to be right on campus.
Why is that relevant? Because it just so happens Lexi’s hospital room faces a few of the university’s fraternity houses, specifically the SAE (Sigma Alpha Epsilon) house.
That group of young men have proved their dedication to the gentleman’s code through what they’ve done for Lexi: After seeing a note asking for pizza in Lexi’s hospital room window, the boys answered by visiting and serenading the kind little girl, showing her kindness and comfort. What tween wouldn’t like to be visited by a bunch of cute older boys?!
But that’s not all. The fraternity used their house and the holiday season to give Lexi an even greater gesture of support – the strung lights to spell out ‘Lexi’ on the fraternity house roof top, so she could look out and know that the men of SAE were thinking about her.
Here’s the Takeaway: Take action when you see someone in need; you never know how much your initiative will mean to the person in need.
