Bruce Willis (67) has the full support of his family! Last March, the American actor was diagnosed with aphasia – a few days ago the “Armageddon” actor received the following shocking news: his condition has unfortunately evolved – the new diagnosis is: frontotemporal dementia. In order to support Bruce in the best possible way, the big patchwork family around the movie star is now sticking together!
“The family is closer than ever,” a source tells People. His wife Emma (44) is particularly keen to give their eight- and ten-year-old daughters as many happy memories as possible with their father. “She wants them to remember Bruce as a great, fun dad,” the insider continues. The 67-year-old should follow a tight daily schedule of activities. This is important to keep him both physically and mentally fit.
Above all, the family of the Hollywood legend would like 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. Seeing that sense of caring return to him and to all of us means a lot. Your continued compassion, understanding, and respect will allow us to give Bruce the fullest possible life,” the family said in a statement on the Association for Frontotemporal Degeneration website.
