Watertown’s Gabriel Aljalian has been busy recently. First he held the first annual Gabriel’s Day of Kindness and then he got to play football with his favorite player – Tom Brady.
The Make-a-Wish Foundation made Gabriel’s wish come true earlier this month and brought the 6-year-old Watertown boy to Gillette Stadium to meet the Patriots’ quarterback. WBZ Channel 4 was there for the meeting – see photos and more here.
Gabriel was one of 10 youngsters who got to toss the ball around with Brady. They also participated in a mock press conference. At the end of the day, Gabriel presented the NFL MVP with a thank you card and a gift.
Gabriel’s Day of Kindness encouraged people to perform acts of kindness on Nov. 3. That was the day he was diagnosed with leukemia. He finished his treatment in December 2014, and his prognosis looks good.
For his act of kindness, Gabriel and his family delivered toys to kids at Boston Children’s Hospital and Dana Farber Cancer Center.
