Texans show support for David Quessenberry

Posted Aug 2, 2014

The Houston Texans are “DQ Strong.”

The Houston Texans are “DQ Strong.”

In June, Texans offensive tackle David Quessenberry was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s T-cell lymphoblastic lymphoma. As the 23 year old began aggressive chemotherapy within days of diagnosis, an outpouring of support from his Texans teammates, the Houston community, and strangers arrived in the form of encouraging tweets, Instagram images, bracelets and YouTube videos.

On Saturday, the organization took their support of Quessenberry’s mission to beat cancer one step further. In an effort led by fellow linemen Chris Myers and Duane Brown, the entire team and coaching staff wore a special “TEXANS FOR DQ” t-shirt to practice, launching a fundraiser for lymphoma research.


“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.”

The shirt is available for fans at the Go Texan Store and shop.houstontexans.com. All proceeds from the sale of the shirts will be donated to the Lymphoma Research Foundation in Quessenberry’s name, with the goal of reaching $100,000. 

 
The Texans are naming Thursday, Aug.14 #DQStrong Day. Once again, the entire Houston Texans staff will be sporting the shirt and encouraging the Houston community to do so, as well.
 
Supporters can follow David on Twitter @DavidQberry and reach out with a #DQStrong tweet. He frequently posts messages and pictures to show his progress and his backing of others who are fighting the same battle.

Hashtag: #DQStrong #HoustonforDQ
