Bruce Willis’ daughter Rumer shares positive health update following actors dementia diagnosis

She's given fans a rare update on her father's health following his dementia diagnosis in February 2023

Bruce Willis’ daughter has provided fans with a rare health update on her father following his devastating dementia diagnosis.

The Hollywood actor was sadly diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia in February 2023, a year after being forced to retire from acting after he had been struggling with aphasia.

The Die Hard star has five daughters in total, Mabel and Evelyn with his current wife Emma, and another three with his ex-partner, Demi Moore.

Moore, 60, and Willis, 69, share Rumer, Scout and Tallulah, who have all began their own careers in the acting industry.

His ex-wife went on to highlight how much love the family has received over Willis’ health condition, saying that it was key for them to be completely open about it.

“If it can have any impact on another family that is struggling in any way with something like this, or bring more attention to the disease in hopes of finding a cure or anything that can be of service to anybody else, I think it’s really important,” Moore stated.

Now, his daughter Rumer has shared a rare update on the acting legend’s health while speaking to the Today show.

His 35-year-old daughter said that ‘he’s so good’, even speaking about how he spends time with her daughter Louetta.

She revealed: “They had some sweet moments during their last visit together, which was recently. Lou is just starting to walk a little bit, and she was walking over to him, and it was so sweet.

“He’s a girl dad, through and through. I saw him with my sisters, my little sisters. So you’re seeing that all come back again.”

Unfortunately, doctors have said that patients with Willis’ condition are normally mute within just two years of being diagnosed, which potentially gives the actor about another year.

Dr. Chris Winter, a neurologist, spoke more about dementia to the Daily Mail, stating: “Usually, once symptoms start, it’s a pretty steady progression over the next few years.

“Generally speaking, when they’re diagnosed, there’s a five- to 10-year prognosis, but in terms of the disability, it’s in a few years, a lot of individuals are just not communicative.”

Frontotemporal dementia, also known as FTD, is the most common form of dementia in people under the age of 60.

Some of the symptoms seen by those who suffer with it can range from personality changes to obsessive behaviours, or even speaking difficulties.
