Last February, ten-year-old Noah Reeb was diagnosed with germinoma, a type of germ cell tumor commonly found in the brain.
Reeb’s favorite football player, Tom Brady, caught word of Reeb’s story and sent him a touching message, encouraging his fight and telling him that he would beat the disease.
Reeb was thankfully declared cancer-free in August, and his parents took him to a Buccaneers game in October to celebrate. At the game, Reeb held up a sign he made that said “Tom Brady helped me beat brain cancer.”
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers player saw Reeb’s sign and shook his hand. During the post-game, Reeb got to meet his hero, and he was honored and emotionally overwhelmed. But the surprises didn’t stop there.
This week, Brady surprised Reeb and his family yet again, except this time with tickets to Super Bowl LVI!
Reeb sat on the couch with his family while they watched Brady’s video message to him with a smile from ear to ear.
“You’ve inspired so many people, including myself but millions of others also, and the NFL and the Bucs look forward to sending deserving fans to the Super Bowl each year,” he said. “As a thank you, I worked with both the Bucs and the NFL to get you and your family Super Bowl tickets this year in L.A. We certainly hope to be there, but I know you’re going to be there.”
Of course Reeb hopes he will get to see Brady compete in the Super Bowl as he attempts to win his eight Lombardi Trophy, but being at the game is a bucket-list item for sure, regardless who is playing.
