Bruce Lewis (John L. Adams) was assigned to be Johnny's physical therapist after Johnny woke from his coma. But their relationship quickly developed beyond therapist-patient: Bruce is Johnny's best friend, as well as a continuing source of humor, optimism, and inspiration for Johnny. Bruce is the one person that Johnny can always turn to, and someone he can trust with his own life. And though Bruce recently moved to Boston for a new job, he and Johnny still keep in touch. No distance can keep these two apart.
