After knowing what Bruce Willis is exactly going through thanks to his recent frontotemporal dementia diagnosis, more horrible details are emerging. It’s already hard for all his fans to accept that a time will come when Bruce Willis doesn’t remember the incredible career he had. His daughters is an even more heartbreaking story because the ones who understand the situation are truly struggling to grasp the situation. Bruce’s wife, Emma Hemming Willis has built a great relationship with Demi Moore as both of them are working together to enjoy time with Bruce as much as possible.
Demi Moore is one of the voices Bruce Willis recognizes easier, she talks to him on a regular basis while he keeps drifting away. A source close to the family spoke to the folks of Radar Online and told them how much the family is struggling to navigate this new reality. They also revealed that Bruce Willis is still there and wants to be at his best when his grandson is born. His daughter Rumer Willis recently announced her pregnancy and they all remain hopeful Bruce will be present and lucid by that time. But dementia can be a cruel disease, they already know what they are all dealing with.
Demi Moore’s role in Bruce Willis’ new reality
This is what the cource from Radar Online said: “Demi has been in constant contact with Bruce and Emma. She’s taking every opportunity she can to spend time with him. If she’s not there by his side, she’s calling on the phone just so Bruce can hear her voice. Bruce can’t say much, and it doesn’t seem like he’s grasping much of what others say. So Emma’s really been the voice and communicator for him. They know he won’t be around forever.
“So they’re cherishing every single moment. He’s determined to stay coherent and lucid for as long as possible so his grandchild can have some happy memories of a grandfather who was present and active in his or her life. He’s dead-set that this new baby is going to get the best he has to offer. Tthere are days when they see glimpses of the old Bruce, but they are brief and far between.
“It seems he’s slipping further away from them, and it breaks their heart. It’s been painful to see him deteriorate. The older girls miss the old Bruce – the one who used to tease them about their boyfriends and give them unsolicited advice. Since we announced Bruce’s diagnosis of aphasia in spring 2022, Bruce’s condition has progressed and we now have a more specific diagnosis: frontotemporal dementia (known as FTD). Unfortunately, challenges with communication are just one symptom of the disease Bruce faces. While this is painful, it is a relief to finally have a clear diagnosis.”
