Tom Brady produced one of the best seasons of his career in 2016, which culminated in another Super Bowl ring for the quarterback whom many consider the greatest of all-time. It may have been the most emotional season of his career, as well. Brady’s mom, Galynn, underwent cancer treatments throughout the season.
She managed to be in attendance for New England’s remarkable comeback win in Super Bowl LI, and this offseason Patriots owner Robert Kraft awarded her very own Super Bowl ring.
“He’s been so supportive of my family and certainly everything my mom went through and knowing first-hand how families deal with it,” Brady told ESPN on Friday when asked about the gesture. “He was always asking, ‘How’s mom doing? How is she feeling?’ We didn’t know up until the very end whether she was going to make it to the Super Bowl. She was a big inspiration for me, and RKK knew it. It was a great surprise to all of us when the ring showed up. She deserves it.”
Brady’s father, Tom Sr., told the Boston Globe that Galynn completed cancer treatments in April. And now Tom is no longer the only member of the Brady household who can boast a Super Bowl ring.
