What do you think of when you hear about frat boys? Beer, partying, muscles, and all out chaos are stereotypically the things related to them. However, frat members are also human, and like any other human being, they can be nice too, despite the masculine image.
This is a heartwarming example of just what a couple of guys are capable of doing for a girl fighting for her life. Check below to be amazed when the girl meets the frat boys.
Lexi is just a 12-year-old kid who's suffering from cancer. But from her smile, you know that this girl is trying her best to keep positive while she stays at Mattel Children's Hospital UCLA.
Lexi has since been sent back home to rest and continue her fight with cancer that has already reached her lungs, but the fraternity will still keep the lights on.
Lexi's room actually faces a fraternity house -- a quite large frat house. So, stereo-typically, wouldn't it have been noisy? Well, not really. Lexi and her mom even decided to ask for some pizza delivery by putting a sign on the room's window.
Thankfully and luckily enough, the nearby frat men brought Lexi pizza, along with a rose bouquet and even a guitar to play her some nice songs.
Not only did the fraternity guys visit Lexi often, other clubs such as the women's tennis club and the football team have already paid the 12-year-old cancer patient a visit.
Sometimes, Lexi and the members of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon chapter in UCLA would play cards. Sometimes, a nice, lovely stuffed toy would be given to the girl. Even just a simple conversation helps a long way for Lexi.
As the fraternity house at UCLA gets decorated every year, the boys decided that the lights should spell out Lexi's name to surprise her as she and her mom look out from the window. There was even a heart shape and purple lights because Lexi loves the color.
Even better, Sigma Alpha Epsilon chapters across the United States are donating money to pay for Lexi's medical bills. Happy holidays indeed!
