Actor Jeremy Renner shared a heartfelt note he received from his young nephew on Instagram Wednesday as he continues to recover from a snowplow accident on Jan. 1, which resulted in him breaking dozens of bones in his body.
Renner previously revealed he was riding his Sno-Cat, a vehicle weighing over 14,000 pounds, to help get people’s automobiles pulled from the snow when it rolled over him.
He suffered chest trauma, broke over 30 bones, and has undergone multiple surgeries as a result of the accident.
“I am very lucky because my uncle is Hawkeye (which is one of the Avengers),” the nephew wrote in a handwritten letter, which Renner uploaded to a reel on his story.
