Frontotemporal dementia is an ‘uncommon’ form of the disease that causes the sufferer problems with behavior and language – there are currently no treatments for the condition.
Bruce’s family, including wife Emma Heming Willis, and ex-wife Demi Moore, have rallied around the Hollywood icon in the wake of his health issues, while also raising awareness of FTD.
Tallulah recently appeared on the Drew Barrymore Show to shed further light on how her dad is doing.
‘He is the same, which I think in this regard I’ve learned is the best thing you can ask for,’ she told the host, via People Magazine.
‘I see love when I’m with him. It’s my dad and he loves me, which is really special.’
When asked why they had been so open about his condition, she added: ‘Well, I think it’s two-fold. On one hand, it’s who we are as a family, but also, it’s really important for us to spread awareness about FTD.
‘If we can take something that we’re struggling with as a family, and individually, to help other people, to turn it around to make something beautiful about it, that’s really special for us.
‘Part of what’s been a really beautiful way for me to heal through this is becoming an archeologist to my dad’s stuff, his world, his little trinkets and doodads.’
In an open letter published over the weekend, Emma – who he shares youngest daughters Mabel and Evelyn with – reflected on how the family have been impacted by his condition.
‘I struggle with guilt, knowing that I have resources that others don’t. When I’m able to get out for a hike to clear my head, it’s not lost on me that not all care partners can do that,’ she wrote for Maria Shriver’s Sunday Paper.
‘When what I share about our family’s journey gets press attention, I know that there are many thousands of untold, unheard stories, each of them deserving of compassion and concern.
‘I have so much more hope today than I did after Bruce was first diagnosed. I understand this disease more now, and I’m now connected to an incredible community of support.
‘I have hope in having found a new purpose – admittedly one I never would have gone looking for – using the spotlight to help and empower others. And I have hope in how our entire family can find joy in the small things, and in coming together to celebrate all the moments life has to offer.’
‘I know I still have so much to learn about FTD, this community, and how research on the disease is evolving,’ she added. ‘But I’m finding my footing. As much as I grieve this experience daily – as I know so many others do – I also know that it has made me stronger than I ever thought possible.’
