Bruce Willis Aphasia Has Progressed to Dementia

The Willis family received an overwhelming wave of support from celebrities after disclosing Bruce Willis’ FTD diagnosis. Among those expressing love and affection for Bruce and the family were Sophia Bush, Selma Blair, Alyssa Milano, and Bonnie Hunt.

The statement released by Demi Moore, Bruce’s ex-wife and mother to three of his five children, provided details on the diagnosis: “It is with a heavy heart we confirm Bruce Willis has been diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia, which brings challenges with communication. Although it’s a difficult moment, it is also a relief to receive a definitive diagnosis.”

Thursday’s statement said: “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. 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.”
