Tom Brady generated a whole lot of buzz for a good cause Thursday.
The New England Patriots quarterback made an appearance at Granite Telecommunications’ Quincy, Mass., offices Thursday morning, agreeing to shave his head as part of a fundraiser for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Granite Telecommunications had agreed to pledge over $5 million to Dana-Farber if 1,000 employees, family members and friends trimmed their locks.
Brady helped the company reach its goal and then some, joining Massachusetts governor Charlie Baker to get a fresh cut as a packed house looked on.
TB12 didn’t even have to go fully bald, as stylists left him with a short buzz cut. Even better: He helped raise at least $6.5 million for cancer research at Dana-Farber.
Of course, this cause is personal for Brady, whose mother, Galynn, was diagnosed with Stage 2 breast cancer in June 2016 and finished her treatments in the spring of 2017.
A national TV audience will get an up-close look at Brady’s new ‘do next week: The 40-year-old QB will appear on ABC’s “Good Morning America” on Monday, then stop by CBS’ “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” that evening.
