Elna Wright, 17, of Elyria, Ohio uses a wheelchair and is non-verbal due to heriditary spastic paraplegia. That didn't stop her from getting elected homecoming queen and making plans for prom night.

Unfortunately, her boyfriend died last fall. She had no date, so her parents asked for one on social media.

Cameron Erving, a member of the Cleveland Browns football team, showed up with a limousine bus. Elna got professional-grade hairstyling, flowers, and a dress donated for her special night. She had a blast. Fox 8 News (auto-start video) reports:

“I just wanted to come here for her,” Erving said. “Just being able to make her smile, that's the biggest thing. Everybody deserves happiness, so anything I can do to make this night as special as possible.”

Wright flashed a bright smile much of the night. Her parents said they expect it will be one of her best memories ever.

“She’s on top of the world right now,” Elna’s dad, Ebony Wright, said. “This means everything.”
