Ashley Adamietz — a cheerleader at Foothill High School in Palo Cedro, California — got a huge surprise last week at her school’s football game.
Senior cheerleader Adamietz was diagnosed with Chronic Myeloid Leukaemia just last month, and she’s been undergoing daily chemotherapy treatments ever since.
So, her school football team made sure she knew she is loved and appreciated.
All 57 members of the football team (as well as the opposing football team) laid orange roses at her feet; orange is the designated color for leukaemia awareness.
The entire plan was put together by senior football player Ryan Caetano. “She’s part of the cougar family, so why not let her know that we’re all here for her,” he was quoted saying. “We are. So I wanted to let that be known to everybody, and especially to her, for what she’s going through.”
KRCR News Channel 7’s Evan Schreiber recorded the video that has been viewed over 16 million times.
