VIDEO: Watch a Calif. football team's moving tribute to cheerleader with cancer

By

Foothill (Palo Cedro, Calif.) High’s Ashley Adamietz was diagnosed last month with leukemia. The football team decided to take it upon themselves to stage a truly touching tribute to their classmate.

As seen in the video above, each player placed an orange rose at her feet as a show of support. Orange is the color of leukemia awareness.

According to the report, one senior on the football team wanted to show Adamietz that they were with her in her fight.
