Bruce Willis’ condition “has progressed” and the “Die Hard” actor has been diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia, according to his family.

The news comes after they previously revealed his aphasia diagnosis in 2022. The 67-year-old actor’s ex-wife, Demi Moore, revealed his new health diagnosis on Instagram with a heartfelt post. “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,” Moore wrote.   “In the spirit of that, we wanted to give you an update about our beloved husband, father and friend since we now have a deeper understanding of what he is experiencing.

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).”   Moore continued, “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.”  Has dementia impacted your life directly in any way?
