Tom Brady had a big day Sunday, but it might end up being even more memorable for one young Tampa Bay Buccaneers fan.
The Buccaneers scored an easy 38-3 win over the Chicago Bears on Sunday, with Brady throwing four touchdown passes. After the game, he spotted a young fan in the front row and let the fan keep his game-used hat.
That fan wasn’t chosen at random. During the game, he had been holding up a sign indicating that Brady helped him beat brain cancer. The interaction was enough to drive the young fan to tears.
What a moment.
The child had a sign saying: ""Tom Brady helped me beat brain cancer."

Brady was asked about the moment after the game, praising the “tough kid” and adding that seeing it puts his football career in perspective.

It’s an awesome gesture from Brady and a moment that kid will never forget. It’s possible the quarterback might have given him more, but some of Brady’s equipment may be spoken for already thanks to another fan interaction.
