(Scroll down for video) A teenager was privileged to go to prom with a famed NFL player.

Defensive tackle Sen’Derrick Marks heard about the 18-year-old woman who was fighting for her life, as she was battling cancer.

Marks offered to take Khameyea Jennings of Jacksonville, Florida, to prom.

Marks asked the young woman to prom and then asked her what color suit he should wear and how he should have his hair done.

Jennings was dressed in a white and silver gown and a silver crown, which matched the suit Marks was wearing.

The couple made their grand entrance as Marks drove Jennings to the event in his Lamborghini.

This week, when Marks went to visit Jennings again, he was informed that she had passed away.

Jennings’ family thanked the NFL player for showing their daughter a great time. The girl’s mother said that her daughter enjoyed the opportunity to have a day with friends and her special guest away from the hospital and chemotherapy.

May she rest in peace.
