‘Tis the season of promposals, and we’ve seen quite a few. Some are good, others not so much. However, this promposal featuring an NFL player and a cancer-stricken teen definitely falls into the former category.
As part of Florida’s Dreams Come True program, which fulfills requests for kids with life-threatening ailments, Jacksonville Jaguars defense tackle Sen’Derrick Marks visited 18-year-old Khameyea Jennings at Wolfson Children’s Hospital’s cancer center to ask her an important question.
Armed with a bouquet of red roses, Marks popped in and told Jennings that he’d heard she had a prom next weekend and that her “mom said it was OK” for her to go with him, if she wanted. Her reaction to Marks’ promposal (and mere presence) is both priceless and telling.
Not only did Jennings say yes, she also told Marks to come to the dance wearing a tux of gold and white, so he could represent the Jaguars by wearing the team’s colors. As if that wasn’t adorable enough, Marks went on to ask her for hair advice.

Good call, Jennings. Good call.
