Tom Brady, who brought the New England Patriots back from a 25 point deficit to win Super Bowl 51, said he wanted to win the game for his sick mother, and he did just that.
Brady’s mother Galynn Brady, is suffering through an undisclosed illness and wore a bandanna over her head, and her “Brady Ladies” jersey, as she greeted her son after the Patriots win.
The Super Bowl was the first game she’s attended all season, with Patriots owner Bob Kraft telling a NESN reporter after the game that Galynn had been undergoing radiation and chemotherapy throughout the entire football season.
‘I spoke to him 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,’ said Kraft.
‘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.’
The Super Bowl MVP had said earlier in the week that he wanted to win the game on Sunday night for his mother.
