MEXICO CITY, December 8 (EL UNIVERSAL).- Bruce Willis’s family is more concerned than ever about the actor’s health, because apparently the aphasia that was diagnosed in March of this year is deteriorating him faster than everyone imagined.
According to information published by the RadarOnline site, both Demi Moore, the actor’s ex-wife, and Emma Heming, his current partner, have been in constant communication as they both fear that the disease will end Willis’s life.
In this sense, the “Ghost” star has taken advantage of all the time possible to be close to the actor: “Demi has been in constant contact with Bruce and Emma. They know she won’t be here forever so they are cherishing every moment,” a source close to the site said.
Remember that aphasia causes damage to a person’s communication skills; it affects speech, the way of writing and even the ability to understand and in the case of Willis, these damages would already begin to be noticed.
“Bruce can’t say much, and he doesn’t seem to be picking up a lot of what other people are saying, so Emma has really been the voice and the way of communicating for him,” she added.
Despite this deterioration, the family of the protagonist of “Die Hard” has remained strong, especially now that the Christmas holidays are getting closer.
“There are days when they get glimpses of the old Bruce, but they’re brief, he seems to be getting further and further away from them, and it breaks their hearts. The girls (his daughters) can’t imagine Christmas without Bruce, it’s been painful to see it deteriorate”he expressed.
They have even been asking for a miracle to have one last happy moment before the damage is much more serious: “All they can do is tell him that they love him and pray for a Christmas miracle,” the outlet concluded.
It was in March of this year when the actor’s wife revealed the condition that had been detected, as well as Bruce’s decision to retire permanently from the big screen.
“Bruce Willis has been experiencing some health issues and has recently been diagnosed with aphasia, which is affecting his cognitive abilities. As a result of this, and with much consideration, Bruce is stepping back from the career that has meant so much to him.” wrote back then.
