Robert Klemko - December 2017
Not long after being drafted to play for the Texans in 2014, David Quessenberry was diagnosed with lymphoma. During the first few days of treatment at MD Anderson, Quessenberry received a personal visit from the owner of the Texans, Bob McNair. He visited to tell Quesssenberry his football career was not over.
True to their word, upon being declared in remission following his many months of treatment and side effects, the Texans put him back into the roster and he spent the season practicing and preparing for a full season.As a way to give back, Quessenberry visits those who are receiving treatment, to provide encouragement and motivation.
When thinking back on his experience, Quessenberry states, "I don't like to say that cancer did anything good. I don't like to give cancer that credit...If anything changed my outlook, it would be the way people came to help me and my family when we werea family that needed help. That's a very beautiful part of the human spirit, that when someone's in need, people come from all over to help them out."
