Tom Brady is a hero to many. At some point during Sunday’s game against the Bears, Tom finally met Noah who was holding up a sign that said “TOM BRADY HELPED ME BEAT BRAIN CANCER”.

The quarterback sent a video to a 9-year-old fan in Utah earlier this year, then got a chance to place a Buccaneers hat on his head and congratulate him on beating cancer after Sunday’s victory against the Bears.

In March, Noah’s mother, Jacque, posted a video of Tom giving the young super fan words of encouragement. At the time Noah was bravely battling Brain Cancer.

“I just want to let you know, I’m thinking about you. I’m with you,” the 44-year-old athlete said in part during the personal video. “My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family,’ hang tough, you’re going to be great I know it. And get well soon. Take care.”

Noah went on to beat cancer and, as promised by his parents, attend a Tampa Bay Buccaneers game to celebrate in October. Noah then received a hearty congratulations from his Hero. Tom Brady mentioned that its actually fans like Noah that inspire and motivate him. Tom spoke about the touching moment to Tampa Bay Times.

“That was really sweet. Obviously, a tough kid,” the father of three said

“It puts a lot in perspective of what we’re doing on the field. In the end, it doesn’t mean much compared to what so many people go through.”

Noah Reeb and his family went to Ellen to talk about the special moment. The kid really looks up to the quarterback. Noah mentioned that he admires Tom Brady on and off- field. He called him a “good-guy” and “great dad”. Noah shared that he is “feeling awesome” and is currently in remission.

After all that he’s been through, Noah found beauty in his illness. “As bad as cancer can be, it is just beautiful,” he said as he began to cry. “So many good things came out of every bad thing that happened.” We are sure that Noah will continue to inspire us. We wish him a prosperous future.
