Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady surprised a 10-year-old brain cancer survivor with tickets to Super Bowl 56.
“I know it’s been a while. I hope you’re enjoying the season so far. We’re grinding, getting ready to start the playoffs,” Brady told Noah Reeb in a video posted by the NFL on Twitter. “But earlier in the year, you held up that sign that I helped you beat brain cancer.”
Brady and Noah connected earlier this season when the 7-time Super Bowl champion sent a video after Noah’s parents reached out to him. Later in the year, Noah and Brady embraced at a game where Noah held a sign saying, “Tom Brady helped me beat brain cancer.”
Brady told Noah in the video that the NFL and the Buccaneers aim to send “deserving fans to the Super Bowl” every season, noting that the young fan “inspired so many people.”
“I worked with both the Bucs and the NFL to get you and your family Super Bowl tickets this year in L.A.! We certainly hope to be there, but I know you’re gonna be there,” Brady added prior to his team’s match-up Sunday with the Philadelphia Eagles.
Brady and the Buccaneers advanced out the NFC Wild Card round with a 31-15 victory over the Eagles in Tampa Bay.
