BRUCE WILLIS' WIFE EMMA HEMING SPEAKS OUT ABOUT HIS DIAGNOSIS
By KATHRYN COOK
After Bruce Willis' family shared his aphasia diagnosis and retirement with the public, many people expressed their concern and sent their love on social media. The actor's wife, Emma Heming, took to her Instagram Story in the days following the diagnosis.
"Your love, support, compassion, prayers really help," Emma Heming Willis wrote in an update, adding that she's "grateful." While the news about her husband isn't the best, at least she seems to have a fantastic support network around her.
According to Mayo Clinic, aphasia is a condition that can affect a person's ability to communicate and understand both speech and written language. It's easy to see why this condition would be a hard pill to swallow for both Bruce and his family, as learning scripts is an actor's bread and butter.
