Hero of the Day: High School Football Team Honors Cheerleader With Leukemia
Ashley Adamietz, a senior cheerleader at Foothill High School, was diagnosed with Chronic Myeloid Leukemia last month and is currently going through daily chemotherapy treatments. Last week, the entire high school's football team rallied behind her to show their support.
When the players took to the field for their first home opener of the season, each one had placed a orange rose at the feet. Adamietz had no idea what the football players had planned. Orange is the designated color for leukemia awareness.
