Bruce Willis’ family admits he’s slowly dying


Family of Bruce Willis shares distressing news about the actor’s incurable illness after his aphasia diagnosis

Bruce Willis, the renowned Hollywood actor, has been diagnosed with an incurable form of frontotemporal dementia, according to an announcement made by his family.

The 67-year-old actor ceased his acting career last year after being diagnosed with aphasia, a disorder that impairs speech and language abilities, which has now tragically worsened.

The family of Bruce Willis provided an update on the actor’s health since his aphasia diagnosis last year, when they announced that he would be taking a break from acting.

Rumer, Bruce’s daughter, disclosed that his condition is “not treatable” and has “progressed.”

Frontotemporal dementia (FTD) is the most prevalent type of dementia in individuals below 60, with symptoms such as personality shifts, compulsive behavior, and speaking difficulties.


Rumer, the 34-year-old daughter of the actor and his former wife, Demi Moore, divulged the devastating news on Instagram.

The post stated that Bruce’s condition is unfortunately “not treatable” and has “progressed.”

The family expressed their immense gratitude for the outpouring of love, support, and touching stories received since revealing Bruce’s initial diagnosis.

The family’s statement also described the “painful” illness faced by the Pulp Fiction star, elaborating on the progression from aphasia to frontotemporal dementia (FTD).

While communication challenges are one aspect of the disease, they expressed relief in finally having a clear diagnosis.

Demi, Bruce’s ex-wife, and Tallulah, his daughter, also shared the statement on their respective Instagram accounts.

The family’s message continued on The Association for Frontotemporal Degeneration’s website, discussing the harsh toll of the illness and calling for more awareness and research.

The family encouraged others affected by FTD to seek information and support through AFTD and urged those unfamiliar with the disease to learn about it and support AFTD’s mission.

They emphasized Bruce’s lifelong dedication to helping others and raising awareness about significant issues, both publicly and privately.

In March 2022, the family announced that Bruce would be taking a hiatus from acting due to his diagnosis.

Rumer, alongside a throwback picture of her and her father, expressed gratitude for the ongoing love, compassion, and support from fans during this challenging time.

The post was signed by Bruce’s five daughters—Rumer, Scout, Tallulah, Mabel, and Evelyn—his wife Emma Heming Willis, and his ex-wife Demi Moore.
