Bruce Willis’ Daughter Rumer Gives Update On Her Dad’s Battle With Dementia

Bruce Willis points toward the sky at something he's looking at while he rests an arm around his daughter, Rumer. Meanwhile, Rumer rests her head on Dad's shoulder. She smiles softly as she looks toward whatever he's showing her.

When Bruce Willis was diagnosed with dementia, he retired from Hollywood. Ever since, fans find themselves wondering how the beloved actor is doing. Luckily, Willis’ family have been open and honest about the difficulties they’ve faced as a family after this diagnosis. They first shared this news back in 2022, though his original diagnosis of aphasia has since progressed to frontotemporal dementia.

Throughout Willis’ medical journey, his family has been by his side every step of the way. This even includes his ex, Demi Moore, who continues to inspire other families similar to her own. Rumer Willis, their eldest daughter, is also known for sharing the sweetest content about her dad. In fact, she was recently asked about him at the premiere of her new film, My Divorce Party, which took place at the 24th Annual Beverly Hills Film Festival.

“He’s great. Yeah, yeah, doing OK. Thank you so much for asking,” Rumer replies to a question about her dad. “I think, for me, through this experience, what’s been so incredible is my dad is so beloved, and that’s been so evident in the transparency with which we’ve been sharing.”

The struggles and heartbreak that come along when a loved one has dementia are so difficult to deal with. Willis’ condition presents many struggles, including those related to communication.

But in addition to all of the love and support from the fans, Rumer is grateful for the positive impact they’re able to have on others going through the same thing.

“And I think if there’s any way sharing our experience brings hope — whatever comes forward as a family — that can have an effect and bring any sort of hope, comfort to someone else experiencing that, then to me, that’s … everything,” Rumer shares.
