Family Gives Stunning Bruce Willis Health Update

Bruce Willis’ wife, Emma Hemming Willis, posted an update on Instagram about her husband’s health and said his life is filled with joy. Mrs. Willis said she posted the video in response to a media headline that said the legendary actor’s life had lost its happiness. “I can just tell you that is far from the truth,” she said.

Pulp Fiction star Bruce Willis was diagnosed with aphasia in 2022, and in 2023, he received a further diagnosis of frontotemporal dementia (FTD). His wife wrote that what people believe about his illnesses is not necessarily true, and her experiences are different. “I’ve come to understand that we are being educated by the wrong people. People that have an opinion versus an experience,” she wrote. 

In February last year, the Willis family issued a lengthy statement saying they were relieved to have the FTD diagnosis as it gave them clarity and helped them understand what was ahead. The statement noted that while there is no cure for the disease, they hope a high-profile patient such as Bruce Willis will help raise awareness and increase research. “Bruce always believed in using his voice in the world to help others and to raise awareness about important issues both publicly and privately,” the statement read.

According to the Alzheimer’s Association, frontotemporal dementia, also known as frontotemporal dementia, is a group of combined disorders caused by nerve cell loss in the brain’s frontal and temporal lobes. This causes a marked and progressive deterioration in a patient’s personality and understanding of the world around them. 

There are various types, including behavioral variant frontotemporal dementia (bvFTD), which usually occurs in FTD patients aged in their 50s and 60s and involves significant behavioral and personality changes. Primary progressive aphasia (PPA) affects speaking and comprehension, and sufferers often struggle to understand or form complete sentences.

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) causes muscle weakness or degeneration and is also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.
