Jacksonville Jaguars defensive tackle Sen'Derrick Marks had a special surprise for 18-year old cancer patient Khameyea Jennings on Thursday.
Marks visited visited Wolfson Children's Hospital in Jacksonville, where Jennings is, and first presented her with a bouquet of roses. He then got right to it and said he heard her prom is this weekend and asked her if he could take her to it.
Jennings shyly said yes, and Marks didn't stop there. He let her pick out which colors he should wear to the dance (white and gold) and even let her decide how he should wear his hair (down).
Jennings is part of Dreams Come True in Jacksonville, an organization that tries to grant dreams of children battling life-threatening illnesses.
