DEVASTATING DIAGNOSIS: Bruce Willis’ family says his health has taken turn for the worse.

As per his family, Bruce Willis’ illness has “progressed” and he has been diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia. The announcement comes after his aphasia diagnosis was disclosed in 2022.

Demi Moore, the ex-wife of the 67-year-old actor, shared his latest health diagnosis in an emotional Instagram post.

Moore added, their family would want to begin by expressing their heartfelt thanks for the overwhelming love, encouragement, and beautiful tales they have received since revealing Bruce’s first diagnosis. In that spirit, they wish to update everyone on their cherished husband, father, and friend, since they now have a better understanding of what he is going through.

She continued that since they released Bruce’s aphasia diagnosis in the spring of 2022, his health has worsened, and they now have a more precise diagnosis: frontotemporal dementia (known as FTD).

Sadly, communication difficulties are just one sign of Bruce’s illness. Despite the discomfort, it is a relief to finally have a definitive diagnosis.

According to the National Institute on Aging, FTD is caused by injury to neurons in the frontal and temporal lobes of the brain. Many different symptoms may arise, including strange behaviors, emotional issues, issues talking, issues working, or issues walking.

In March 2009, Willis married Emma Heming at their residence in Turks and Caicos; the couple had two children, Mabel and Evelyn.

The actor was previously married to Moore for twelve years, and they had three kids, Rumer, Scout, and Tallulah, together.

In a statement uploaded on the Association for Frontotemporal Degeneration (AFTD) website, the family provided further information about the “cruel illness.”

FTD is the most frequent type of dementia in those under 60, and since diagnosis may take years, it is likely considerably more widespread than one realizes. The announcement said that there are no treatments for the condition right now, but that people hope this will change in the next few years. Bruce has always believed in the importance of utilizing his voice to aid others and raise public and private awareness about vital topics. They believe in their hearts that, if he could today, he would want to bring worldwide attention and a sense of connection to others who are also coping with this painful illness and its effects on so many people and families.

The Willis family urged others afflicted with FTD to check out the abundance of knowledge and support offered by AFTD and to continue campaigning for research and awareness.

The statement said that Bruce has always found happiness in life, and he has assisted all he knows in doing so. It has meant the world to him and to all of them to hear that caring repeated back to all. During this terrible time, ones devotion for their loving husband, father, and friend has left them deeply affected. Ones ongoing kindness, understanding, and regard will allow them to assist Bruce in living life to the fullest extent possible.

Willis’s whole family, including his wife Emma, ex-wife Moore, and kids Rumer, Scout, Tallulah, Mabel, and Evelyn, signed his declaration.

After obtaining a diagnosis of aphasia in March, Willis’s family stated he would retire from acting. The disease impairs communication, especially the capacity to comprehend spoken and written language.

According to the National Aphasia Association, the illness affects two million Americans, with around 180,000 new cases identified yearly.

Aphasia is usually caused by a brain injury, with a stroke being the most prevalent cause in older persons. Between 25 and 40 percent of stroke survivors develop aphasia.

Willis will shortly become a grandpa. His eldest daughter, Rumer, revealed in December that she is expecting her first child.
