This Entire Fraternity Stopped Shaving To Honor Their Brother Who Is Battling Cancer

“Tough times don’t last, tough people do.”

1. This is Brian Levitas. On October 29, Brian, a junior at Indiana University, was diagnosed with non-Hodgkins lymphoma.

2. When Brian’s fraternity brothers learned he had cancer, they dropped everything they were doing, skipped class, and rallied around their brother.

3. With Movember just days away, the guys decided to put down their razors and join the no-shave November movement in honor of their friend. They decided they would set a goal to raise $500.

4. Just days later, they had raised over $57,000 for the Lymphoma Research Foundation.

5. Brian’s dad and younger brother also stopped shaving in honor of Brian.

6. Brian’s slogan is, “tough times don’t last, tough people do.” Brian says that having an army of friends and family to support him has “put a smile on my face every single day that I wake up, and made this ten times easier.”
