cheerleader with leukemia given orange roses from football team

At the Foothills High School football game in California last week, the team showed support and love for one of the cheerleaders who was recently diagnosed with leukemia.

Senior cheerleader Ashley Adamietz was diagnosed with leukemia just before the start of the school year and is reportedly undergoing daily chemotherapy treatment according to her coach. However, that didn’t stop her from showing up to cheer for the team with her squad.

When the football team took the field, each player was carrying an orange rose. They took turns placing those roses at Adamietz’s feet as she looked on in disbelief. Orange is the color for leukemia awareness.
