Foothill High School (Palo Cedro, California) senior Ashley Adamietz was diagnosed with chronic myeloid leukemia in August, but that isn't stopping her cheerleading season. Despite going through daily chemotherapy treatment, Adamietz was still at the Cougars' first home game on Sept. 2.
The football team showed their support of Adamietz, as each player dropped an orange rose in front of her before the game. Orange is representative of leukemia awareness.
According to KRCR's Evan Schreiber, the plan was hatched by No. 55 Ryan Caetano. Foothill proceeded to beat Spanish Springs (Sparks, Nevada), 46-33, to move to 2-0.
"We took care of family business, before we took care of business on the field," said head coach Joey Brown.
The Foothill community is using the hashtag #AshleyStrong to support Adamietz.
