Football players support cheerleader with Leukemia

Posted: Updated:

PALO CEDRO, Calif. - A football team from Foothill High School in Palo Cedro, Calif., had a special cause to rally around.

As the team entered the field before its game against Spanish Springs, each player made sure to drop off a rose to cheerleader Ashley Adamietz who, according to KRCR-7, was diagnosed with leukemia last month.

Adamietz had no idea what the football players had planned, and took to Twitter to express her utter shock and gratitude for the gesture.

The roses were orange, the color that represents leukemia awareness. According to her cheer coach, Adamietz has been going through daily chemotherapy treatment.

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