As reported on Fox News, when cancer patients finish their chemotherapy they often ring a bell at the hospital to commemorate the occasion. In this case, the 26-year-old offensive lineman for the Houston Texans rang it with such force that the plaque it was mounted on actually came off the wall.

After complaining of shortness of breath and a persistent cough, Quessenberry was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin T-cell lymphoblastic lymphoma in June 2014 according to ESPN.com. Quessenberry underwent almost three years of treatment, before he was finally able to put the ordeal behind him. He’s now focused on returning to the game.
