The star's family is providing crucial support as he recovers from injuries sustained in a snow plow accident earlier this year.
Family support in bad times is crucial for an individual's well-being and resilience. During difficult times such as illness, loss or financial struggles, family members can provide emotional support, practical assistance and a sense of belonging and security. They can listen, empathize and offer guidance or solutions. Family support can also help alleviate stress, reduce feelings of isolation and strengthen relationships.
It is essential to nurture and maintain close ties with family members, especially during challenging times, as they can provide a valuable source of comfort and strength. Jeremy Renner, the "Hawkeye" actor, is extremely lucky in that aspect as his entire family is by his side as he recovers from his scary snow plow accident in January 2023. Renner gave fans a glimpse of this support when he shared a heartfelt message he recently received from his nephew. The actor shared the message on his Instagram story on March 15, reports TODAY.
The message read, "I am very lucky because my uncle is Hawkeye (which is 1 of the Avengers). I am also very lucky that my uncle is alive from his accident." Renner responded to this by writing, "Love my little man," with two praying-hand emoji and a red heart while also writing, "Bless You."
The "Mayor of Kingstown" actor was critically hurt on January 1 while hauling another nephew's truck from a private road in Reno, Nevada, according to the Washoe County Sheriff's Office. Renner's Pistenbully snowplow, which can weigh up to seven tons, reportedly began to slip down a slope and he attempted to stop it.
A report from Washoe County Sheriff’s Office read, "Renner was pulled under the Pistenbully, and the track rolled over him. Renner suffered injuries to his torso, extremities, face and head." Since being hit by a car, the Marvel actor has been documenting his recovery on social media.
He posted an Instagram snapshot of himself laying in a bed receiving physical rehabilitation a few weeks after the accident. He explained in the caption that he had shattered more than 30 bones. He wrote, "Spawned from tragedy for my entire family and quickly focused into uniting actionable love. I want to thank everyone for their messages and thoughtfulness for my family and I much love and appreciation to you all."
"Much love and appreciation to you all. These 30-plus broken bones will mend [and] grow stronger, just like the love and bond with family and friends deepens. Love and blessings to you all," he added. On February 27, he posted a video of himself pedaling a stationary bike while leaning on a support device on his Instagram story.
"Whatever it Takes," he titled the video. He looked to be clutching the best-selling Mark Nepo book "The Book of Awakening" in a second Instagram story. "Mental Recovery, Too," he captioned the photo. He's also been promoting Season 2 of "Mayor of Kingstown" and his upcoming Disney+ program "Rennervations" on social media.
The four-part series, which begins on April 12, will follow Renner as he travels across the world assisting in the rebuilding of cars for a new purpose. On March 7, he shared the first look from the series on Instagram.
