She Left A Plea For Help In Her Hospital Window, WHO Answered It Will Have You In Tears.

While it is true that not all members of Greek society subscribe to hazing rituals and party culture, there are enough of these brothers and sisters that ruin it for the rest. My years in college only seemed to confirm their bad rep.

It is in the case of UCLA's Sigma Alpha Epsilon (SAE) fraternity and 12-year-old Lexi Brown that I am happy to be given a slightly different view. On October 30, Lexi was airlifted 150 miles from her home to the Mattel Children's Hospital UCLA. She had been undergoing chemotherapy due to recurring tumors in her lungs, and the treatment led her heart to work at a dangerously low rate of 15 percent. Her room there faced the SAE house.

When Lexi and mother, Lisa, posted a note on her window requesting pizza, members of SAE delivered. Not only did they arrive with food, they also had a bouquet of roses and a guitar.

Shortly after the visit, the fraternity decorated their house in honor of their new friend. When Lexi looked out her window, she saw her name in lights.

"I saw my name on the roof. I thought it was really cool," Lexi said. "I didn't think that would ever happen."

A fundraiser was set-up to help support the Brown family as both parents took time off work to be with their daughter. Lexi has helped raise money for other cancer patients as a St. Baldrick's kid and also by co-creating a Make-A-Wish ice cream flavor.

Lexi Brown is a 12-year-old cancer patient. When the chemotherapy she had been receiving caused her heart to fail, she was airlifted to a hospital in Los Angeles.

When Lexi posted a note requesting pizza on her window, members of UCLA's Sigma Alpha Epsilon (SAE) responded.

Along with a box of pizza, five members brought a dozen roses and a guitar.

Lexi's mother, Lisa, told NBC News, "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.'"

The love didn't stop there. The fraternity decorated their house in honor of their new friend.

“So, they had me turn around and look at the lights, and I saw my name on the roof,” Lexi told CBS Los Angeles. “I thought it was really cool. I didn’t think that that would ever happen.”
