However, Brady later on in the game jogged to a young boy holding a sign that read, “Tom Brady helped me beat Brain Cancer.” The young Buccaneers fan, but most importantly, a brain cancer survivor, made Brady realize that what the athletes are doing isn’t just for entertainment, the sport values much more.

The seven-time Super Bowl winner shook the boy’s hand and gave him his game hat, making his moment of a lifetime. That young fan was 9-year-old Noah Reeb, who couldn’t hold his tears running down his cheeks.

Brady, in his post-game press conference, spoke of his interaction with the young boy. “It was really sweet. Obviously, a tough kid,” Brady said. “It puts a lot in perspective of what we’re doing on the field. In the end, it doesn’t mean much compared to what so many people go through, so we all try to make a difference in different ways.”
