1,500 Greeks Take A Break From A Conference To Sing To Six-Year-Old Cancer Patient


Greek serenades are a tradition on a lot of campuses. Sometimes the songs are a little dirty, and sometimes they are a little sweet. But nothing is sweeter than 1,500 fraternity and sorority members singing to a personalized song to a 6-year-old who is battling leukemia.

The students who attended this year’s Association of Fraternal Leadership and Values (AFLV) Central Conference in Indianapolis serenaded the patient, Christian Parchman, with a very special song – one that was written specifically for him by The Songs of Love Foundation, which is “a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing personalized uplifting songs, free of charge, for children and teens currently facing tough medical, physical or emotional challenges,” according to USAToday. Christian’s song, which was a rap (his favorite) included all of his favorite things: Indiana Pacers mascot Boomer, the Avengers and his Nintendo Wii.

“It made me feel happy,” Christian told USAToday after he heard the song. “My favorite part is about Boomer, because he’s my favorite.”
