In Super Bowl LVI, Kelly Stafford was seen cheering with her daughter as she watched her husband Matthew throw for his first touchdown in a Super Bowl.

Kelly Stafford surgery
In 2019, Kelly underwent surgery for a significant brain tumor that was successfully removed. Initially, Kelly felt dizzy, and Matthew encouraged her to see a doctor about the issue. An MRI later revealed the frightening truth: Kelly was suffering from a brain tumor.
“The medical term was an acoustic neuroma or vestibular schwannoma,” she told ESPN. “They were going to open up my head and there was a 50 percent chance I would lose my hearing. There was a chance I’d lose facial function. It was all really scary.”
Last year, Kelly shared that remained “tumor-free” and she credits her husband for supporting her immensely throughout their challenging journey.
“I wouldn’t be here today, without him,” she told Good Morning America, noting that Matthew had a major role in detecting the cancer. “He was the one that really encouraged me to go get checked and fought with me through that entire battle.”
