“Shocked, overwhelmed, and speechless.” Are words to describe how high school senior cheerleader Ashley Adamietz feelings after an emotional football game last Friday night.
Ashley has been diagnosed with Chronic Myeloid Leukemia back in August and since then has had to undergo daily chemotherapy treatments.
Senior football player Ryan Caetano wanted to show Ashley that her classmates were behind her, so he came up with this idea to show her some support and the whole football team joined him.
Orange is the color designated for leukemia awareness. Last Friday night as the Foothill High School football team entered the field each of the 57 players placed an orange rose at Ashley’s feet.
“She’s part of the Cougar family,” Ryan said, “so why not let her know that we’re all here for her. We are. So I wanted to let that be known to everybody, and especially to her, for what she’s going through.”
A video of the players’ sweet show of support was captured on the night and has been going viral since receiving millions of views in a matter of days.
Ashley is still going through treatment, so she has declined interview requests, her coach remarked that she appreciates all the support.
Joey Brown, head football coach said, “We took care of family business before we took care of business on the field.”
