Dwayne Allen visited the Riley's Hospital for Children back in February and met high school student Sequayah Lockett who his undergoing chemotherapy treatment for Lupus.

Allen told her during the hospital visit to call him if she wanted a date for the prom. She did and they went to her school's prom together.

Video Description: The true MVP of an Indiana high school's prom night was a student battling lupus, who even outshined Indiana Colts tight end Dwayne Allen, who went as the brave teen's date. Sequayah Lockett, a 17-year-old at Wayne High School, told WANE-TV that the football player promised to take her to prom if her lupus symptoms had subsided enough for her to attend the big night. Sure enough, Sequayah did feel better, and she made sure Allen held up his end of the bargain.
