“Pal, you’re a hero, what you did was so brave, so selfless — your sister is so lucky to have you as a big brother. Your parents must be so proud of you,” Evans told Bridger in the message.

Evans then added that he’d send Bridger “an authentic Captain America shield because pal, you deserve it.”

“Keep being the man you are, we need people like you,” Evans said.

“Hang in there, I know recovery might be tough, but based on what I’ve seen, I don’t think there’s much that can slow you down.”

Bridger saved his sister’s life on July 9th by “standing between her and a charging dog.”

Bridger ended up with 90 stitches after getting bitten by the dog.

“He later said, ‘If someone had to die, I thought it should be me,'” Walker added.

The whole thing was coordinated by’s Brandon Davis, who revealed it was “one of the most fulfilling things, ever.”
