Jeremy Renner Hits New Milestone 10 Months After Accident: ‘Tears of Joy’
By Movieguide® Contributor
Jeremy Renner gave fans a 10-month recovery update after his snow plow accident, sharing a video of himself running up a hill.
“Today marks the day on 10 months of recovery… First attempt of any of this activity (especially at steep grade) and was brought to tears of joy, hopefulness, and gratitude for all of you support along with my family and friends,” Renner posted on Instagram, alongside a video of him running up his steep driveway. “I keep pushing for many reasons, but you are my fuel🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼.”
This recovery update is truly incredible after the injuries that Renner sustained on New Year’s Day when he stepped in front of his Sno-Cat snow plow to save his adult nephew from being run over. During his heroic maneuver, he was dragged under the 14,300-pound machine, sustaining life-threatening injuries, including blunt chest trauma, eight broken ribs, two broken ankles and more.
Renner was discharged from the hospital only two weeks later. He has since motivated himself with upcoming projects to find the strength for his recovery.
Just two months after his accident, Renner walked the red carpet for the release of his Disney+ show RENNERVATIONS and has since found healing through an upcoming music project which chronicles the pain and joy of his recovery process.
Along with an outpouring of love from his fans, Renner has found great support from his Marvel castmates, who have been shocked by the speed of his recovery.
Earlier this month, Renner revealed that rehabilitation has included numerous types of therapy to find healing from his injuries. While these are largely to thank for his speedy recovery, he also credits focusing on his mental well-being.
Since his snowplow accident at the beginning of the year, AVENGERS actor Jeremy Renner has been undergoing numerous types of therapy to recover.
“I have been exploring EVERY type of therapy since Jan 14th,” Renner wrote on Instagram. “Countless hours of physical therapy, peptide injections, iv drips and pushes, stem cell and exosomes, red light / IR therapy, hyperbaric chambers 2.0 atmospheres, cold plunge, and the list goes on and on.”
“My greatest therapy has been my mind and the will to be here and push to recover and be better…Be exceptional…I feel it’s my duty to do so,” he continued. “Not to squander my life being spared, but to give back to my family, friends, and all of you whom have empowered me to endure. I thank you all.”
