Bruce Willis’ wife Emma Heming shares heartbreaking video of him after his dementia diagnosis

Actor Bruce Willis was diagnosed with aphasia, which impairs communication. His family revealed his condition has progressed to frontotemporal dementia (FTD).

“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,” his daughter, Rumer Willis, posted.

Willis’s wife, Emma Heming, collaborates with a dementia specialist to ensure the best care. “My grief can be paralyzing, but I’m learning how to live alongside it. As my step-daughter [Scout Willis] told me, grief is the deepest and purest form of love.”

Emma shared a cherished memory on Instagram of Willis praising her just a year ago, writing, “What’s this new Memory thingy on IG!? Omg, my biggest fan. I’m in love with him.”

Before his diagnosis was public, co-workers noticed his struggles. A crew member from “White Elephant” remarked, “He was just being puppeted.”

Bruce Willis’s journey with FTD highlights the challenges of neurodegenerative diseases, navigated with love and support.
