Houston High School student Allie Allen is fighting her second onset of cancer.
But the illness didn't stop her from attending a homecoming dance with Collierville senior Brayden Carpenter last Saturday. The two have known each other since sixth grade.
When Brayden showed up, he had a big surprise for Allie. He had shaved his head because he wanted to make her feel more comfortable.
School officials said it was an incredible gesture for a wonderful young woman.
Allie was the junior homecoming princess for Houston. She is an avid fan of the football team and despite her treatments at St. Jude she does not miss the games.
Each game, she sits on the sideline in her pom uniform. Last week, she even gave a pep talk from her hospital bed to the team as the players prepared for a big game.
As if things weren’t tough enough, Allie isn’t the only one in her family fighting cancer. Her mom, Debbi, has breast cancer.

BARSTOW, Calif. — Former Disney Channel star Orlando Brown was recently arrested following what authorities say was a violent altercation at an apartment in California.
The 30-year-old “That’s So Raven” actor was reportedly engaged in a dispute with his girlfriend and his girlfriend’s mother when an officer from the Barstow Police Department arrived on the scene at around 8 a.m. Thursday.
The officer realized there were active arrest warrants on Brown and his girlfriend’s mother, so they were both arrested and booked into the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department Barstow Jail, according to a police press release.
Brown’s bail was set at $25,000.

BAY LAKE, Fla. — What happens when you meet your favorite Disney character for the first time?
Check out what happened Friday night when Atlas, a service dog, saw Pluto for the very first time up close at Walt Disney World.
With his friend recording, Julian Gavino took his Golden Retriever to meet Pluto Friday night at Epcot.
Gavino told ABC News until this past week, Atlas only knew of Pluto as a giant stuffed doll, because he has one at home that "he loves so much."
But the two hit off when they met as real live dogs.
Gavino posted the video on Facebook and wrote "Atlas was more than excited to meet his best pal look alike."
