Cheerleader Battling Leukemia Brought to Tears by Football Team’s Gesture


By: Jon Corrigan

Foothill High School’s football team in Palo Cedro, Calif. rallied around a fellow student battling cancer last Friday.

As the team took the field before its game against Spanish Springs, each player placed an orange rose at the feet of senior cheerleader Ashley Adamietz who, according to KRCR-7, was diagnosed with Chronic Myeloid Leukemia in early August.

The color orange represents leukemia awareness.

Her cheer coach says Adamietz has been going through daily chemotherapy treatments.

“I can’t thank you enough to both teams for making my first game one to remember and making me cry tears of joy,” she wrote. “I love Foothill High School.”
