Galynn was not able to attend any of the Patriots games last season due to her battle with cancer, but did make it to the Super Bowl LI. Prior to the big game, Brady told reporters that he was dedicating his performance on the field to his mother. Brady's father, Tom Brady Sr., recently told The Boston Globe that Galynn had concluded her cancer treatments in April.
