Bruce Willis’ wife urges fans to support each other after sharing heartbreaking story

Bruce Willis’ wife has urged fans to spread “love and compassion”.

Emma Heming Willis uploaded a short clip to Instagram on Mother’s Day in the US on Sunday, telling her followers a heartbreaking story amid her husband’s devastating dementia battle. The Die Hard actor was diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia, known as FTD, last spring. His health battle was first announced the year prior when his family revealed he was suffering from a language disorder called aphasia.

Taking to her Instagram over the weekend, Emma said: “Happy Mother’s Day. You know this day is made me think of three girlfriends of mine. Moving through this Mother’s Day very differently this year. One lost her mother, the other one lost her daughter.”

Emma added: “And I have another girlfriend of mine whose mother has FTD. So we’re I know that there’s nothing that I can do that will ultimately take their pain away. I think it’s important for me to reach out to them, just to let them know that I’m thinking of them. Which I think ultimately like honours them and their person.

“I think people get so nervous about like, Should I say something? Will that be more upsetting to them? Will it be more triggering? Honestly, sometimes I think silence is weird. If really do if you are leading with love and compassion and empathy, the person on the other end will ultimately appreciate it. Good morning and happy Mother’s Day.”

“In my humble opinion, silence is weird. Never be scared or nervous to reach out to someone who might be navigating rough waters because of your own fear. If you are leading with love and compassion, it will always be well received,” she penned.

Fans flocked to the post’s comments, along with one of Emma’s friends she was talking about, who wrote: “I love you so so much @emmahemingwillis. Thank you for honoring my mom. And always being a true friend.” Another fan replied: “Dear Emma, I send you a big hug from Spain. You are not only a blessing to your beautiful girls, but a treasure to our dear Bruce. You are so amazing as a human being and as a person.
