HOUSTON – The Houston Texans are raising money for the Lymphoma Research Foundation with the proceeds from TEXANS FOR DQ t-shirt sales, in honor of David Quessenberry, their second-year offensive lineman who was diagnosed with lymphoma in June. 

The entire offensive line, led by Chris Myers and Duane Brown, have dedicated the 2014 season to their teammate while he battles for his life.  Brown and Myers have set a goal to raise $100,000 with the sale of the TEXANS FOR DQ t-shirts to be donated to the Lymphoma Research Foundation in David’s name.
“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 final open practice of training camp on Aug. 14 will be #DQStrong Day.  All staff will wear the shirt on this day and the Texans encourage the fans and Houston community to purchase a shirt and wear them alongside the team.
Shirts will be sold at the Go Texans Store at NRG stadium and online at shop.houstontexans.com beginning today for $20.  
Supporters can follow David on Twitter @DavidQberry and show their support with a #DQStrong tweet.  He frequently posts messages and pictures to show his progress and his support for others who are fighting the same battle.
