A Baytown boy, who is fighting the same kind of cancer as Texans player David Quessenberry, gives the athlete some advice.

Jake Daniel, 7, is a non-Hodgkin lymphoma survivor who decided to cheer on his favorite player battling the same cancer via YouTube.

The brave third-grader’s viral video gives tips and advice on how to make light of the situation and cope with the sickness.

Daniel’s tips include to keep praying, keep your head up, never give up, eat lots of Jell-O when you get mouth sores and to always flirt with the nurses.

“Good luck, buddy,” Jake said in the video. “I will be praying for you.”

Quessenberry was so touched by the video, he tweeted “Jake you just made my day my friend. Wise words young stud can’t wait to meet you!”
