Bruce Willis Is Diagnosed With Dementia


There is bad news for the fans and well-wishers of Bruce Willis. Last year, the ‘Die Hard‘ actor was diagnosed with aphasia, which affects language cognition.

That has transformed into something worse. On Thursday, his family issued a statement confirming that his condition has worsened.

The actor has been diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia (FTD) which directly affects memory.

While this is painful, it is a relief to finally have a clear diagnosis,” the official statement reads.

FTD is a cruel disease that many of us have never heard of and can strike anyone.”

It was issued on behalf of his wife Emma Heming Willis, ex-wife Demi Moore and his children Scout, Rumer, Mabel, Tallulah, and Evelyn.

In the Spring of last year, the actor’s family revealed that he has been diagnosed with a condition called aphasia. It affects the brain’s ability to understand or formulate languages.

Because of this diagnosis, Willis had to step down from acting.
