Bruce Willis, the beloved actor known for his roles in movies like “Die Hard,” has been living quietly since being diagnosed with aphasia, a condition that affects his ability to communicate. His family recently revealed that his condition has progressed to frontotemporal dementia (FTD), and they have been open about his journey, keeping fans informed.

Willis’ daughter, Rumer Willis, expressed gratitude for the support the family has received. “Our family wanted to start by expressing our deepest gratitude for the incredible outpouring of love, support and wonderful stories we have all received since sharing Bruce’s original diagnosis,” she shared on social media.

She continued, “In the spirit of that, we wanted to give you an update about our beloved husband, father and friend since we now have a deeper understanding of what he is experiencing. Since we announced Bruce’s diagnosis of aphasia in spring 2022, Bruce’s condition has progressed and we now have a more specific diagnosis: frontotemporal dementia”

As Willis’ cognitive abilities decline, his family and doctors are doing everything they can to make his life easier. His wife, Emma Heming Willis, has been working closely with a dementia specialist to ensure Bruce gets the best possible care. In 2022, she shared her feelings about the situation, saying, “My grief can be paralyzing, but I’m learning how to live alongside it. As my step-daughter, Scout Willis, told me, grief is the deepest and purest form of love. I hope you find some comfort in that too.”

Emma recently discovered a new Instagram feature that lets you see old photos and videos. She shared a sweet memory of Bruce praising her skincare brand, Cocobaba, just a year ago. In the video, Bruce is heard saying he’s “crazy” about his wife’s brand. Emma captioned the post, “What’s this new Memory thingy on IG!? Omg, my biggest fan. I’m in love with him.”

Before the family made Bruce’s diagnosis public, some of his co-workers noticed he had trouble remembering his lines. A crew member from his recent film, “White Elephant,” mentioned, “It was less of an annoyance and more like: ‘How do we not make Bruce look bad?’ Someone would give him a line and he didn’t understand what it meant. He was just being puppeted.”

Bruce Willis’ journey with frontotemporal dementia is a challenging one, but his family’s love and dedication shine through. Please share this story with your family and friends on Facebook to spread awareness and support.
