Bruce Willis Diagnosed With Frontotemporal Dementia FTD

Bruce Willis Diagnosed With Frontotemporal Dementia (FTD)

The family of Hollywood superstar Bruce Willis has announced that his condition has worsened as he battles memory loss a year after being diagnosed with language loss. On February 16, his family said, “Since we announced Bruce’s language loss diagnosis in the spring of 2022, his condition has continued to deteriorate and we now have a more specific diagnosis: frontotemporal dementia (FTD). Unfortunately, communication challenges are just one symptom of the disease that Bruce is now facing. While it is painful to hear, it is somewhat of a relief to finally have a clear diagnosis.”

Frontotemporal dementia is a rare and little-known disease that causes a patient’s cognitive decline over many years before the disease is accurately diagnosed. Currently, there is no known cure for this disease. Willis’ family hopes that medical experts can find an effective treatment for the disease. Despite his worsening condition, Willis’ family said that the Die Hard star can cope with his situation and wants to raise awareness and provide “global attention and connection” to others suffering from this disease.

Frontotemporal dementia affects the frontal lobes of the brain, which control behavior, personality, emotions, movement, speech, language, and certain aspects of memory. Its symptoms differ from those of Alzheimer’s disease, such as changes in personality and behavioral disorders. This rare disease accounts for less than 5% of all cases of cognitive decline and is most commonly found in people under the age of 65. Willis was diagnosed with language loss last year, which made it difficult for him to speak, write, and understand language. His family announced his retirement from acting in March of last year.

Since retiring, Bruce Willis has been enjoying his private life and spending time with his family.
