A Jacksonville teen who got her dream date to prom — Jaguars tackle Sen’Derrick Marks — died after a long battle with liver cancer.

Khameyea Jennings, according to the Florida Times-Union, met Marks when he visited the Wolfson Children’s Hospital where she was undergoing treatment after being diagnosed with cancer in 2013.

Last month, carrying a bouquet of flowers, he asked her to prom.

From the AP:

Dreams Come True of Jacksonville had approached the Jaguars about the prom invitation, and Marks said he jumped at the chance to make a difference in Jennings’ life. Jennings’ mother said the teen enjoyed the opportunity to attend prom without having to worry about her cancer treatments.
