Hollywood actor Bruce Willis has frontotemporal dementia, his family recently announced.
This announcement follows a previous update where the Willis family revealed the actor was taking a backseat to acting because of his suffering from aphasia, which causes difficulties with speech.
The family expressed their “deepest gratitude for the incredible outpouring of love,” and revealed that frontotemporal dementia is the most common form of dementia in people under 60. Bruce Willis is 67.
“While this is painful, it is a relief to finally have a clear diagnosis.” The family statement read. “Today there are no treatments for the disease, a reality that we hope can change in the years ahead. As Bruce’s condition advances, we hope that any media attention can be focused on shining a light on this disease that needs far more awareness and research.”
Wishing Bruce Willis and family all the best in this trying times.
