Ever since it was revealed that Bruce Willis suffers from aphasia, a condition which affects one’s ability to communicate, he withdrew from the spotlight. It was announced later on that the Die Hard star suffers from dementia.
“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,” his daughter Rumer Willis posted on the social media.
“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 (known as FTD).”
His wife, who’s he’s caretaker, shared updates on the condition of the actor with the fans and they are getting more and more worried for his state.
Recently, Emma opened up about her husband’s condition and his life during an appearance on the Today show for World Frontotemporal Dementia Awareness Week.
Asked if her husband has been aware of his condition, she said, “It’s hard to know.”
“Dementia is hard. It’s hard on the person diagnosed, it’s also hard on the family. That is no different for Bruce, or myself, or our girls. When they say this is a family disease, it really is,” Emma added.
“I think it was the blessing and the curse, to finally understand what was happening, so I can be into the acceptances of what it is.
“It doesn’t make it any less painful but just being in the acceptance, and being in the know of what is happening to Bruce, makes it a little bit easier.”
Recently, Willis was spotted by the paparazzi during a car ride. What many noticed is that his health condition took a toll on his appearance. The actor doesn’t resemble the person he once was but appears a lot older. It’s obvious that he has lost some weight as well and appears frail.
We truly hope his condition will improve as much as that is possible.
