Earlier this spring, a social media posting about actor Bruce Willis yielded an outpouring of support from fans. The post, written by Willis' former wife Demi Moore, indicated that “...Bruce has been experiencing some health issues and has recently been diagnosed with aphasia, which is impacting his cognitive abilities..”. Moore went on to say that Willis would be stepping away from his career in acting as a result of the diagnosis.
