My nephew is a hero who saved his little sister from an attacking dog. He, himself, took on the attack so that the dog wouldn’t get his sister. He later said, “If someone was going to die, I thought it should be me.” He got home from the hospital last night. I know it’s a long shot, but I’m reaching out to the Avengers and other heroes so that they can learn about this latest addition to their ranks. Please, check your DM’s for my sweet nephew’s story. @tomholland2013 @chrishemsworth @robertdowneyjr @markruffalo @prattprattpratt @twhiddleston @chadwickboseman @vindiesel @chrisevans @vancityreynolds @thehughjackman Edit: I never expected my sweet nephew’s story to reach so many. Please, follow my other post (I only have two so far 😅) for the latest info regarding my sweet nephew and his family.
“The boy was treated by a“ skilled plastic surgeon ”and is now resting at home,” Walker said.
His article was liked more than 202,000 times at the time this article was published and received more than 38,000 votes on Reddit.
Nikki Walker recently updated her original post, stating that the family did not feel “angry” with their dog owners.
He wrote that the incident brought both sides together.
“I would also like to mention here that the owners of the dog are really great people who are not kind to Bridger and his family,” Walker said in his title. “We feel no anger towards them and – if anything happens – as a result of this incident, there was only an increase in love among our families.”

Hey, all. Please, share my nephew’s story so that it gets as much exposure as it can. We know that our little hero would love some words of encouragement from his favorite heroes. On July 9th, my six year old nephew Bridger saved his little sister’s life by standing between her and a charging dog. After getting bit several times on the face and head, he grabbed his sister’s hand and ran with her to keep her safe. He later said, “If someone had to die, I thought it should be me.” After receiving 90 stitches (give or take) from a skilled plastic surgeon, he’s finally resting at home. We love our brave boy and want all the other superheroes to know about this latest hero who joined their ranks. @tomholland2013 @chrishemsworth @robertdowneyjr @markruffalo @prattprattpratt @twhiddleston @chadwickboseman @vindiesel @chrisevans EDIT: I just finished visiting with Bridger at his home. His wounds are looking so much better! He’s in great spirits, and his awesome personality is intact. He can’t smile too widely yet, but he was grinning as I read some of your comments to him. I’d also like to mention here that the dog’s owners are really great people who have been nothing but kind to Bridger and his family. We feel no resentment toward them at all, and—if anything—there’s only been an increase of love between our families as a result of this incident. EDIT 2: Once again we’re blown away by the amazing comments and messages that Bridger’s receiving. I’ve had lots of inquiries about a GoFundMe. Bridger’s family has asked that any one wishing to help out financially can, instead, donate to @mission_22 or @wwp. Bridger is also a huge fan of Science, especially Geology. So I’m going to start a post where people can share with him pictures of cool rocks that they see. EDIT 3: Once again, everyone’s kindness has meant so much to us. I’m trying to get to all of the messages that I can, but it may take some time. For those who have inquired about sending Bridger some rocks, here’s the address to use: Bridger Walker P.O. Box 22141 Cheyenne, WY 82003 #BridgerStrong
Walker also said that Bridger is “in great spirits” and “his wonderful personality is solid.”
Walker also stated that the family wanted donations to the Wounded Warrior Project, a group dedicated to helping injured military veterans, or to Mission 22, a non-governmental organization to prevent suicides, instead of GoFundMe.
“Once again we were stunned by the incredible comments and messages Bridger received. I asked many questions about a GoFundMe, ”Walker said in an update. “Bridger’s family asked anyone who wants to help financially donate to @ mission_22 or @ wwp.”
In a third update, the aunt stated that she created a post where others could share their photos with “cool rocks” because Bridger is a “big fan of science, especially geology.”
Walker added the rock post containing the image of various colored stones on July 14.
