What is Frontotemporal Dementia? 

Last month, Bruce Willis’ family revealed that he had been diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia, a degenerative brain disease for which there is currently no cure. Willis’ wife, Emma Heming Willis; his ex-wife Demi Moore, and daughters Rumer, Scout, Tallulah, Mabel, and Evelyn Willis issued a statement on the website of the Association for Frontotemporal Degeneration (AFTD), as well as on their social media handle. This is a group that advocates for patients of such similar degenerative disorders and their families.

According to the website, frontotemporal dementia is a progressive brain disorder affecting the frontal and anterior temporal lobes. It is the most common type of dementia among people above the age of 60. The disease manifests itself in one of two ways, depending on which part of the brain it affects: with significant changes in the person’s behavior or language ability.

It is caused by rogue proteins that clump together in the brain, but it is unknown what causes that protein formation. Genetics is reportedly the main factor. However, having a parent or other biological family member with FTD is not a guarantee that one will develop the disease.

We wish for Bruce Willis’ good health, and prayers to the whole Willis family in these tough times.
