    Rumer Willis shares throwback photos of dad Bruce Willis.

    Actor Bruce Willis has stepped away from acting after being diagnosed with aphasia. The announcement came by way of a joint statement from his family.

    “This is a really challenging time for our family and we are so appreciative of your continued love, compassion and support. We are moving through this as a strong family unit, and wanted to bring his fans in because we know how much he means to you, as you do to him.
    As Bruce always says, ‘Live it up’ and together we plan to do just that,” the statement posted to social media on March 30, 2022 read, in part.

    Aphasia is defined as “a disorder that affects how you communicate,” according to the Mayo Clinic, and is fairly common, affecting more than 200,000 patients in the United States every year. A patient suffering from aphasia will have trouble speaking and understanding language.

    On Father’s Day, Bruce’s daughter, “Dancing With the Stars” champ Rumer Willis shared a post in honor of her dad. Bruce’s wife, Emma Hemming, also shared a post in honor of Bruce.
