Bruce Willis’ wife Emma has given a heartbreaking update on the acting legend’s dementia battle.
His daughter Rumer, 34, previously revealed the news that he was diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia.
Emma Heming Willis, 44 attended a screening of the film Little Empty Boxes, which is a feature length documentary by Max Lugavere about his mother’s battle with dementia.
But while praising the film, the star opened up on her husband’s condition as she admitted that treatment options are “slim,” reports The Sun.
“When you live the world of dementia you know that options are slim.
“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.”
This comes after Ms Willis moved fans to tears after she shared a touching video tribute to her beloved 68-year-old husband, as he battles with dementia.
She has been sharing several special memories in March in honour of Willis’ birthday along with their 14th wedding anniversary.
Most recently, she posted a throwback video from 2019 filmed by Bruce’s first wife, Demi Moore, 60.
In the mini movie, set to the Coldplay song Fix You, Emma and Bruce celebrated their 10th anniversary by renewing their wedding vows.
The pair first got married in Turks and Caicos on March 21, 2009 and the wedding was attended by Willis’ daughters and ex-wife.
His daughter Rumer, 34, whom he shares with Demi Moore, shared the heartbreaking news about her father’s diagnosis on Instagram.
In her post, she explained that Willis’ condition was sadly “not treatable” and “has progressed”.
“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.”
