My mother passed away from lymphoma. It was too far advanced when the doctors found out what she had, though. Hopefully with David, they caught it in time. I wish to add my thoughts and prayers to David as well.

All my thoughts and prayers are focused on the person, not the player.

Personally, I doubt he will ever play in the NFL after this, but if anyone can do it, DQ can. Much more importantly, he has a bigger battle on his hands.

Forget about the football field. At this point coming back and living a normal long life would be like winning 10 super bowls.

All the best DQ. You got this!

Texans’ offensive line dedicates 2014 season to David Quessenberry
Posted on July 27, 2014 | By Brian T. Smith
Quote:
Duane Brown and Chris Myers had a public message Sunday for David Quessenberry: The Texans’ offensive line is dedicating its 2014 season to a much-loved, cancer-stricken teammate.

Brown and Myers are the heart and core of the team’s trenches. While the Texans have been sweating out the start of a new season under first-year coach Bill O’Brien, Quessenberry has been going through his third round of chemotherapy in Houston at M.D. Anderson hospital.

Lineman already wear “Quessenberry Strong” bracelets and planned T-shirts will raise awareness about lymphoma, while highlighting Quessenberry’s ongoing battle with the disease. Close friend Ben Jones, a Texans guard, continues to send texts to Quessenberry, who participated Saturday in a Relay for Life event in Carlsbad, Calif., which honored cancer survivors and victims, and saw 42 members of team DQStrong raise $11,150.

But with recent training-camp focus on Texans such as Andre Johnson, Ryan Fitzpatrick and Arian Foster, a trio of lineman went out of their way Sunday to return attention to Quessenberry.

“We’re dedicating (the season) to him and we go out and battle like he’s right beside us,” Brown said.

Myers added: “With everything going on with David right now, this season is obviously going to be dedicated to him.”

Quessenberry, 23, was humbled by the message.

Teammates stopped by daily at M.D. Anderson in mid-June, when he was diagnosed with non-Hodgkins T Lymphoblastic Lymphoma. Jones and several Texans soon took Quessenberry to an Astros game, while a recent Twitter image of a shaved-head Quessenberry showed the 2012 sixth-round pick doing pullups with a proclamation that read, “Cancer messed with the wrong dude.”

But Quessenberry never thought his teammates would dedicate an entire NFL season in his name.

“It’s hard to put into words what it means to have the support of your brothers on the team. … Truly it’s an honor,” said Quessenberry, who recently returned to his home state of California after completing his third round of chemotherapy. “I want to do them proud. I want to come back stronger and come back and help these guys win when I do come back eventually.

“This year I got blind-sided getting diagnosed with cancer. Just knowing that my teammates and my brothers (have) my back is truly something special.”

Jones said the Texans’ lineman wouldn’t have it any other way. A group that’s been thinned out by injuries and attrition is rallying behind a teammate who’ll never play for them this season.

Every night before we go to bed we say a prayer for the man,” Jones said.

Texans stand behind Quessenberry; hope to raise $100,000 for lymphoma
Quote:
The Texans’ organization backed the push Saturday, announcing a drive to raise $100,000 in Quessennberry’s name for the Lymphoma Research Foundation.

The effort is being guided by center Chris Myers and left tackle Duane Brown, who are close friends of Quessenberry’s.

“You sit back and think about David Quessenberry dealing with what he has to deal with and we have no complaints in the world,” Myers said. “With everything going on with David right now, this season is obviously going to be dedicated to him.”

Coaches and team personnel wore “Texans for DQ” T-shirts Saturday at practice.

The Texans’ final open practice of training camp Aug. 14 will be #DQStrong Day. All staff will wear the shirt and the Texans are encouraging fans and the Houston community to purchase a shirt and wear it with the team.

Shirts are on sale at the Go Texans Store at NRG Stadium and online at shop.houstontexans.com for $20.

Special bond between #Texans' Quessenberry and O'Brien, both of whom are dealing with life-changing medical issues off the field. #NFL

Quessenberry immediately had to have lungs drained of fluid. Thanked #Texans trainer Geoff Kaplan for helping save his life.

Before lymphoma diagnosis, #Texans' David Quessenberry was at a point where he could have died on the field due to amount of fluid in lungs.

Some questions keep sticking in my mind. By the time someone has accumulated 2 liters of fluid in their lungs from lymphoma, they are barely able to breath let alone be in any shape to exercise. Things like this don't happen overnight, nor should it take a trainer to recognize that there is a major problem. Where was the medical team with their multiple checks. How did he pass his physical only 2 months before diagnosis? Many of you would not know this, but Quess was found to have a large lymphoma tumor growing in his chest at the time of diagnosis.......but no signs on routine chest x-ray just 2 months earlier when so-called pass/fail exams are performed on NFL players?

I thought about that too when I first heard about Quess being diagnosed with this ailment. Then I wondered why would chest x-rays be part of any team's pass/fail exams as a matter of course? Not defending them but maybe the med teams just rely on the fact that a guy passes the cardio part of his fitness checkout? Perhaps they only do the chest x-ray if some part of his cardio exam points them in that direction.
