The Student Union passed an emergency Senate Money Resolution (SMR) Sunday for $ 1,275 in order to create 150 T-shirts to be sold on campus in recognition of Eddie Senibaldi ’12 who is currently being treated for cancer.

The proceeds from the sale of the shirts will go to the Center for Pediatric Hematology and Oncology at Massachusetts General Hospital.

According to the SMR, students “have designed a t-shirt to sell to the Brandeis Community [and] to create community togetherness during the difficult time of one of our fellow students.”

Nine senators and several club leaders, including the those of the Brandeis Black Student Association and the South Asian Student Association, submitted the SMR.
