Tom Brady’s fifth Super Bowl win was extra special because his mom was there - and he dedicated his win to her, calling her "my everything."
"All the girls in my life, my wife, mom mom, my sisters, my daughter, my nieces, they're all here, so it's just so special," he told Westwood One Sports.
Unable to attend any of her son’s games this season due to her illness, Galynn Brady was in the stands and on the field last night, shedding tears with her champion New England Patriots quarterback.
Since revealing the sad news last week, Pats owner Robert Kraft told NESN that Galynn had undergone chemotherapy and radiation throughout the 2016 season.
“I spoke to [Brady] in the locker room before the game, and I said, ‘We gotta win this one for your mom,’ because I know how important his mom is,” Robert said. “She’s been going through chemotherapy and radiation, and this is the first game she’s been to. She came here, and I just saw her, and it was really cool.”
Her 39-year-old son defeated the Atlanta Falcons 34-28 in overtime.
Earlier last week, Tom had expressed concern that his mom was too ill to attend Super Bowl, admitting that this year has been “tough” on his family.
“Yeah, it’s personal with my family,” he said in a news conference. “I’m just hoping everyone is here on Sunday to share a great experience. It has been a tough year. Every family goes through different things. My family has always been a great support system for me.”
