There are 5 comments on What Now for Bruce Willis after Actor’s Recent Dementia Diagnosis?

  1. With all the technology can’t we build a cell that goes in and destroys all bad cells it’s hard to believe that we can’t with everything that we’ve accomplished in 100 years

  2. Why are they not using HBOT for people with dementia. It will increase oxygen levels and blood supply to the brain and circulatory system and hopefully delay the progression of the disease.

  3. Bruce: You do not know me, but I have been watching your movies for ears. I admire you more than you know. You are my favorite actor. I am 75 years old and have loved you from the start. I pray for you and I hope The Lord will be merciful.
    God bless your family and you. I pray they find a cure in time for you.

  4. I’m am sorry for the news you’ve received. My mother has been battling this disease for quite a while now. I thank you and your family for sharing this information. I pray good things can from the things you all share. Someday maybe nobody will have to deal with this. I feel for you all and send my best wishes to you all involved

  5. My MIL was diagnosed at 55 with this same thing. No other medical issues and a strong body. She had it for 12 years but became bed ridden the last 2 years of her life curled up in fetal position. She passed away 2 years ago. It was a staph infection that eventually got her that started in her hand from clenching her fists. So sad to watch this beautiful vibrant woman go in this fashion.
