Tom seemed emotional as he handed over the hat to Noah

"The best part of everything I've achieved is being able to help kids like Noah. You inspire me more than anything!!!" the father-of-three added.

According to the Tampa Bay Times, Tom first heard of Noah earlier this year when someone from Noah's extended family told him that he was a huge TB12 fan and was battling brain cancer.

The NFL star was clearly moved and recorded a video that he sent to the nine-year-old's mother Jacque on Instagram.

"Hey Noah, how are you doing? I just wanted to let you know I'm thinking about you. I know you're one of my biggest fans in Utah, and I know you've got a great family that loves you, and support your mom and dad and your siblings," he said in the video.

He continued: "And I just want to let you know I'm thinking about you, I'm with you, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Hang tough. You're going to be great, I know it. Get well soon and take care, bye bye."

Following the sweet interaction, which was caught on camera, Tom added: "That was really sweet. Obviously, a tough kid. It puts a lot in perspective of what we're doing on the field. In the end, it doesn't mean much compared to what so many people go through."

He added: "We all try to make a difference in different ways, and I think so many guys commit time to their foundations and to doing good things for the world... I always think, 'Do the best you can do, under any circumstance.' It was nice to see."
