Sen'Derrick Marks : Jacksonville Jaguars player takes teen with cancer to prom

NFL player Sen’Derrick Marks visited Khameyea Jennings in hospital to ask the cancer-stricken teen if he could accompany her to prom.

While the teen had plans to attend the event with her sister, she quickly changed them when Marks paid her a visit at Jacksonville’s Wolfson Children’s Hospital last week. Armed with a bouquet of roses and permission from the girl’s mother, the towering football player asked to be her escort. Marks even took wardrobe advice from the teen.

True to his word, Marks showed up to fetch Jennings for the prom dressed in a white-and-gold tuxedo with his long, braided hair down. He also managed to turn heads by foregoing a limo for the night by bringing his Lamborghiniinstead, WCTV reported.

While Jennings admitted to knowing nothing about sports, she was all smiles during the dance at the Jacksonville Zoo.

Jennings was diagnosed with liver cancer on Mother’s Day 2013, the station reported, and continues to battle the disease with frequent trips to Wolfson for treatments.

Her battle seems to have tugged at Marks’ heartstrings.

“Continue to fight and show others the strength and faith u have Khameyea,” Marks tweeted on Sunday.
