Worsening health condition of Bruce Willis
Bruce Willis health condition has unfortunately deteriorated. This was officially announced by the Hollywood star’s own family in a long post on social media.
The updated diagnosis
Last year it was reported that Bruce Willis suffered from aphasia, a speech disorder. Today the family has received a more precise and updated diagnosis: the actor has front-temporal dementia. This is a degenerative disease that affects nerve cells, causing damage and preventing the brain from performing its normal functions.
The problems facing the actor
The family reports that Willis faces a number of consequences, not only problems in communication. Indeed, such pathology, over time, can make speech and body movement difficult but also cause personality and behavioral disorders.
The family’s statement
The family writes, “Meanwhile, we wanted to start by expressing our deep gratitude for the incredible demonstration of love, support and wonderful stories we have received since we told you about the diagnosis of Bruce. In the same spirit we wanted to give you updates regarding our beloved husband, father and friend as we now have a greater understanding of what he is experiencing.”
The words of his wife, Emma
Speaking on behalf of the family is Emma Heming, the actor’s wife: “Since being diagnosed with aphasia in the spring of 2000, Bruce ‘s condition has changed and we now have a more precise diagnosis: front-temporal dementia.”
