Tom Brady made his day

The boy stood in the front row with a banner in his hand that read, “Tom Brady helped me beat Brain Cancer.” It was a small yet very powerful message from the young kid that gained the attention of the Bucs quarterback. And that is when Tom Brady took time to attend to the kid in a special way.

However, it was not just the kid whose night was made special, the quarterback himself had an unforgettable night as he crossed the milestone of throwing 600 touchdown passes in his career, making him the first player in NFL history to reach the mark.
