Tom Brady is encouraged with how his mother has responded to treatments for an undisclosed health issue.

"Mom's doing better," Brady said on WEEI. "She's been through a lot. My dad has been through a lot. It's been a really hard year for them. Our prayers are with her. She's the best mom in the world, so it was nice to win for her, nice for her to be there.

"She didn't make it back to a game all season; it was so hard for them, but I just wanted her to try to get her rest," he continued. "She's been going through a lot, a lot of intensive treatment. But the prognosis is good. She's not quite through it yet, but hopefully there is some healing energy from our game. We just love her so much. Hopefully she really turns a corner. We all pray for that."

Brady's mother, Galynn, was able to make the trip for the New England Patriots' 34-28 comeback win over the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl LI.
