Everyone prayed for his well-being, including his family, fans, and colleagues.
Bruce Willis, known for his cult roles in films such as «Die Hard», «Armageddon», and «Pulp Fiction», was diagnosed with aphasia and dementia. Afasia is a state that affects a person’s ability to communicate, and dementia is a group of symptoms that affect memory, thinking, and social abilities.
The wife of Bruce Willis, Emma Heming, shares the news about his health with his fans. In the touching video that Heming shared on her Instagram account, Willis smiled and was in a good mood when everyone sang «Happy Birthday».
Heming openly spoke about the problems associated with caring for patients with aphasia and dementia. She further explained that every day she has moments of sadness and grief, but she was also lucky that her family and friends support her.
Willis and Heming raise two daughters, Mabel Ray and Evelyn Penn, who are seven and five years old, respectively. Recently, Heming shared a video collage from special moments from the life of Mabel Ray, including photographs of her with his father. In one photo, Willis bathes in the pool with his daughter, and in the other, he carries her on his shoulders.
She said: «I always urge people to devote this time to themselves. Whether it is a training or walk, you need to fill your own bowl before you can fill others».
Despite the difficulties associated with caring for a person with aphasia and dementia, Heming and her family retain a positive attitude and value every moment spent with Willis.
