Radiating with happiness and smiling ear-to-ear in the picture that his aunt shared, Bridger was seen posing with the belt. Thanking WBC in an Instagram post, his aunt Nikki Walker shared, “They told me they would send him a belt, but I didn’t realize it would be THAT belt! (sic)”
She added, “The family and I spent much of the day opening the cards and packages Bridger has received. It’s been such a surreal experience for us, because we recognise that each envelope and box represents an individual or family who used their time and resources to wish Bridger well. We wish that we could meet each one of you to thank you in person. Our hearts are filled to overflowing, and thank you hardly seems sufficient.”
We wish the dear boy, speedy recovery!
