This whole Bruce Willis dementia diagnosis has me all in my feels.
When I think of Bruce Willis, I think of the larger than life characters from the likes of Moonlighting, Die Hard, The Fifth Element, The Sixth Sense, The Whole Nine Yards, Pulp Fiction, and — my favorite — Hudson Hawk.
But sadly, those characters are no more, taken from us by his debilitating struggle with frontotemporal dementia.
It all began with aphasia — the struggle to speak, understand, or read language — in 2022, and has progressed to the point where Bruce is now incommunicative from the horrible disease.
The family has been very forthcoming with Bruce Willis updates, keeping the public in the loop — as much as possible — about what is going on with the patriarch of the family.
They have chosen to be so open, because they want to spread awareness about FTD, which is quickly stealing Bruce away.
His youngest daughter with Demi Moore, Tallulah, recently appeared on the Drew Barrymore Show, speaking about how Bruce is doing these days.
She says that she bonds with her dad through music, which is easier for him to understand than the spoken word.
It’s a huge part of how I spend time with him now, is playing music and just kind of sitting in that energy of love, and it’s really special.Tallulah Willis
Tallulah also says that there is pretty much no change currently with Bruce.
And, unfortunately, that is as good as can be expected with this disease.
No news is good news, right?
