Bruce Willis Family Worried About Another Health Problem

Legendary actor Bruce Willis had been diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia (FTD) last month. The retired actor stepped out in Santa Monica on Thursday. FTD symptoms often arise in younger patients between the ages of 40 and 65, according to the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine.



During the filming sessions in which the actor was present, people present could already sense that something was not right. He had difficulty in holding conversations, coupled with not being able to connect words correctly.

His wife, Emma Heming Willis took to her social media account to share a moving tribute to her husband, showing off some of the most iconic characters he has played in a photo montage from movies including Die Hard, The Fifth Element and The Sixth Sense. She accompanied the post with a caption that revealed the touching moniker their daughter uses to refer to her dad.

In May, Emma shared a video to Instagram about how Evelyn has been helping to try and keep her dad as healthy as possible. She explained: “I have to tell you this story, and I’m going to try and do it without crying because when Evelyn told me this story, I was an absolute puddle.”

She then elaborated on how Evelyn had informed her that people with dementia can suffer from dehydration prompting her mum to ask how she knew.

She explained: “She says, ‘Well, I was at school the other day, and I had some free time and I was looking at fun facts about dementia,’ now that’s not funny, but it’s kind of funny. And she is her father’s child because these two love some just random facts.”

She continued: “So, I said to her, ‘OK, Evelyn, we will always make sure that Daddy has a bottle of water in hand. Thank you for letting me know.’ I said, ‘That is the most loving and compassionate thing that you can do is to be curious and educate yourself on your dad’s disease.'”
