As he unravels the blindfold from his mother’s eyes, she immediately becomes overwhelmed with emotion, embracing her 27-year-old son for the life-changing gift.

‘I know mama… I can feel your energy in this video! All the obstacles WE have overcome… Man…I love you so much, mama… thank you for EVERYTHING! Especially blessing me with a sis like my Deja!!!’ Goodwin wrote in the caption for the video.

Following a breakout 2017 season, the 49ers rewarded Goodwin with a three-year, $20 million contract extension in the off-season.

‘If Deja wasn’t my sister, I feel like I would still be motivated but not in the way that I am today,’ Goodwin said.

‘Having a disabled sister, that’s a lot more motivation, especially when she tells you growing up that she wishes she can be out there with the kids playing and she wishes she can be out there running around.’

According to ESPN, doctors didn’t expect Deja to live beyond six months when she was born. On Sept. 17, she will celebrate her 27th birthday.

‘It’s very inspirational to me,’ Goodwin said. ‘To me, no doctor can determine when it’s your time to go. God really knows, and He’s the only one who can really give you the day. You just have to keep the faith and live the best you can each day.’

Goodwin’s production skyrocketed last year when quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo was inserted as the starter early in the season.

The chemistry between the two gridiron stars resulted in career highs in catches (56) and receiving yards (962) for Goodwin. He also finished third in the NFL with 17.2 yards per catch.
