His mom was diagnosed with breast cancer in June of 2016. But now Tom Brady has revealed that she is ‘doing really well’ following treatment. The New England Patriots quarterback, 40, told People: ‘She’s such a wonderful woman and she’s been so positive through it all and we’ve been so proud of her.’
‘She’s doing really well,’ Brady said. ‘I think any family that has dealt with cancer realizes the challenge it is not only at that moment, but as it continues to be.’
‘I think she’s got so much appreciation for the people who have supported her,’ he added.
Galynn, who lives in San Francisco, was unable to attend any of her famous son’s games during the 2016-17 season as a result of her health.
However, she was able to see Tom win his fifth Super Bowl in February 2017 and also was able to travel to Houston this past February where she witnessed his team’s crushing defeat at the hands of the Philadelphia Eagles.
In an interview with the NFL Network last October, Galynn spoke about how she and Tom ‘FaceTimed a lot’ while she was undergoing treatment.
‘Losing my hair was hard for me. Because losing to hair to women, that’s who you are. I’d have my bandanna on and he’d say: ‘Oh Mom, you look beautiful, you look so beautiful’,’ she said.
