Fans enjoyed a heartwarming moment during the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ game against the Chicago Bears on Sunday night at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa Bay.

Quarterback Tom Brady noticed a boy in the crowd holding a sign saying, “Tom Brady helped me beat brain cancer.

After the victory (38-3), the 44-year-old father-of-three ran to Noah Reeb and planted a team cap on his head as the 9-year-old burst into tears.

The Bucs shared the moment on social media, as did Noah’s proud dad. “Noah’s first game in the NFL. A dream come true. Still hard to believe, ”wrote James Reeb.

This isn’t the boy’s first meeting with Brady, the first player in NFL history with 600 career touchdown passes.

In March, the former New England Patriots star also shared a recovery video message with the boy from Salt Lake City, Utah, who was diagnosed with brain cancer in December 2020.

The boy was a huge Brady fan, and the soccer icon helped him through his grueling health journey, mum Jacques Reeb posted on his Instagram. Photos show Noah shaved his hero’s jersey number, 12, off his head and wore his Lucky Bucs pajamas during hospital stays.

“I’m thinking of you. I’m with you,” Brady said in the video to the child. “My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Hold tight. You’re gonna be awesome, I know that.

“He’s been a constant,” Reeb wrote in her stories about the California native who recently bought a house in Miami Beach with his wife Gisele. “Someone Noah could count on. A guy who never gives up, perseveres and stays focused and calm under pressure. An exceptionally decent human and an incredible athlete. Someone who’s also beaten the odds. He’s a real hero.

A GoFundMe page, which raised approximately $ 23,000 for Noah’s treatment, says the boy was given the green light in May and is currently cancer-free.
