Actor Bruce Willis has been diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia
family members announced in a joint Instagram post Thursday.
The diagnosis of frontotemporal dementia
A brain disorder caused by degeneration of the brain's frontal lobe,
comes nearly a year after Willis' family confirmed the movie icon,
now 67, was stepping away from acting due to an aphasia diagnosis.
A message posted on the Instagram accounts of wife Emma Heming Willis,
ex-wife Demi Moore and daughter Rumer Willis states:
Our family wanted to start by expressing our deepest gratitude for the incredible outpouring of love
support and wonderful stories we have all received since sharing Bruce’s original diagnosis
