Bruce Willis (67) has to cope with another stroke of fate! In March last year, Rumer Willis (34), the actor’s daughter, announced that her father had been diagnosed with aphasia and would therefore be retiring from the film business. Because the disease can cause speech disorders. Now the “Pulp Fiction” actor has received another shocking diagnosis: he has dementia.
This was announced by the 67-year-old’s family on the Association for Frontotemporal Degeneration website. They also announced that unfortunately there are no treatment options for the disease. “We hope that will change in the years to come. As Bruce’s condition progresses, we hope media attention can focus on shedding light on this disease as much more awareness and research is needed”, write.
The actor himself is no longer able to help raise awareness of the disease. “Bruce has always found joy in life – and he has helped everyone he knows to do the same. It means a lot to see that sense of caring return to him and to all of us. Your continued compassion, understanding, and respect will enable us to provide Bruce with the fullest possible life,” the statement concludes.
