Bruce Willis, the beloved celebrity, has recently been diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia. Despite this heartbreaking news, his dedicated wife, Emma Heming, remains by his side, honoring their commitment to support each other in sickness and in health. Emma is determined to provide Bruce with the best possible care, seeking guidance from dementia experts, like Teepa Snow, who have been instrumental in equipping her with new skills for her “dementia care toolbox”.

Emma Heming sometimes finds herself reminiscing about the times when Bruce was healthier. Recently, she discovered a new feature on Instagram called “Memories”. This feature displays past images and videos that have been shared on the app. Among these memories was a heartfelt message of praise Emma had posted for Bruce on Twitter a year ago. Overwhelmed with love and admiration, she reposted the video with a new caption, expressing her deep affection for him. Bruce and Emma

The Willis family has shown remarkable openness in sharing Bruce’s health journey with the public. They initially announced his diagnosis of aphasia in the spring of 2022, and now, with a deeper understanding of his condition, they have revealed the more specific diagnosis of frontotemporal dementia (FTD). Despite the challenges this brings, the family is grateful to finally have clarity on Bruce’s condition. Bruce and his family

As Bruce’s cognitive abilities decline, the directors and crew members who have had the privilege of working with him in his last film, White Elephant, have gone above and beyond to support him. Understanding his struggles, they have simplified the process by “feeding” him lines and helping him navigate through scenes. Their goal is not to make Bruce look bad but to ensure he feels comfortable and empowered despite the difficulties he faces. Bruce on set
