On the same day the NFL Network aired its segment detailing Galynn Brady’s emotional cancer battle, Gisele Bündchen shared a photo expressing how proud she was of her mother-in-law.
She captioned the post, “So proud of this beautiful warrior! I love you so much sweet Galynn,” and added pink heart emojis.
Because of her chemotherapy and radiation treatments, Galynn and her husband, Tom Brady Sr., could only attend one Patriots game last season: Super Bowl LI. The couple returned to Gillette on Sunday for the team’s rematch against the Falcons and were a part of the pregame ceremonies. Following New England’s convincing 23-7 win, quarterback Tom Brady talked about what it meant to have his parents there.
“It was great for them to be here and be in attendance and for us to win while they’re here in attendance, too,” he told reporters in his postgame press conference. “It’s been a while since that happened. But, that was very special for me. I heard they got on the field pregame.”
“Just happy for my mom,” he continued. “I mean, what’s she’s been through is pretty challenging and challenging for my dad, challenging for all the people out there that are battling with cancer and other diseases. You can’t take anything for granted, so I love the time I get with her. We were carving pumpkins today with my kids and beating the Falcons tonight, so it made for a pretty perfect day for me.”
Brady shared a heartwarming Instagram post of both his parents, writing that he is “beyond blessed to have the love and support” from them.
This picture sums up a perfect night for my family and team. I am beyond blessed to have the love and support from my parents. My mom and dad were recognized in the pregame along with other families who have fought tough battles with tough illness. These two are the ultimate warriors who have faced these challenges head on and keep fighting. I am so happy they were there together and I thank all the fans who gave them such a warm welcome. I love them so much and I love you all! ❤️💯💪🏼
