HOUSTON (AP) — Texans offensive lineman David Quessenberry was so happy to finish chemotherapy at a Houston medical center that he exuberantly rang an end-of-cancer-treatment bell and broke it.
Quessenberry, who in 2014 was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin T-cell lymphoblastic lymphoma, had his last treatment Tuesday at the University of Texas MD Anderson Center. A plaque, featuring a bell and a cord, encourages patients who’ve completed chemotherapy treatment to clang the bell to sound their recovery efforts.
The 300-pound Quessenberry, in a video posted to his Instagram account, is shown ringing the bell with such enthusiasm that he yanked it off the wall — with medical personnel cheering him on.
Quessenberry, who played for San Jose State, was a sixth-round pick in 2013 for the Texans.
