Bruce Willis ‘Out of Options’ After Dementia Treatment

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.

Bruce Willis’ wife has now opened up about her husband’s prognosis.

Update on Bruce Willis’ health

“When you live the world of dementia you know that options are slim,” Emma Heming Willis wrote on Instagram alongside a photo of herself with her friend Max Lugavere. “But some won’t take that lying down which is how change is made, and I got to witness the beauty in that last night.”

Emma congratulated Lugavere on his new documentary, “Little Empty Boxes,” which follows his mother’s battle with dementia. She praised him “for being so brave and vulnerable” with his story “and spotlighting the importance of brain health.”

“His love for his mother is powerful. His motivation to find answers from leading health experts is inspiring and then be so gracious to share that information is a true blessing,” she wrote.

The documentary, directed by Lugavere and Chris Newhard, highlights Lugavere’s journey as he “educates himself on everything he can do to help” his mother. Emma was so moved by the film, she said “it would be an absolute disservice” if it didn’t have a huge release.
