David Quessenberry celebrates end of chemo, breaks bell

Houston Texans offensive lineman David Quessenberry was no match for the bell he rang signifying the completion of his chemotherapy treatments.

HOUSTON - A bell signifying the completion of his chemotherapy treatments was no match for Houston Texans offensive lineman David Quessenberry.

Quessenberry posted a video to Instagram of the moment in which he rang the bell that quickly broke from the wall. Quessenberry quickly apologizes to nurses for the mishap, while his family and friends can’t help but laugh at the situation.

 

cancer did NOT make me strong. cancer did NOT make my family strong. cancer did NOT galvanize my community. cancer did NOT bring rival team Head Coaches and players together to support me. cancer did NOT bring people together. cancer did NOT make people travel hundreds of miles to help me and my family in our time of need. cancer did NOT make people pray for me. cancer did NOT bring me my Angel. cancer did NOT make me thankful for my life. cancer did NOT make me a believer that there is more to this world than just our eyes can see. cancer did NOT shape me into the man I am today. Love did. It has Been more than 1000 days since my fight began. Yesterday I received my last infusion of chemo therapy. The things I have seen and the things I felt through my fight I could never forget and last night after a full day at MD Anderson I watched a video that @meeeglit put together for me. It was filled with short clips of the people I hold most dear to me that lasted for more than an hour and every second of It was absolutely incredible. I don't know what to say to every one other than Thank You, I Love you, and I will never forget you and the kindness and Love you showed me. -DQ "Love backed by Faith is unstoppable" P.S. this bell just like cancer never stood a chance...

“It has Been more than 1000 days since my fight began,” Quessenberry said, in part, on Instagram. “Yesterday I received my last infusion of chemo therapy. The things I have seen and the things I felt through my fight I could never forget… I don't know what to say to every one other than Thank You, I Love you, and I will never forget you and the kindness and Love you showed me… P.S. this bell just like cancer never stood a chance...”

Congratulations, David!
