So much so that the woman fears that the actor has already reached the point of not recognizing her. This was stated by the actor Wilfred Gliem, whose wife is a cousin of Willis's mother, in a statement he gave to the German newspaper Bild.
According to Gliem, Marlene Wills would be very concerned about how her son would be experiencing his illness and, above all, how he would be relating to the world around him, something that has changed by leaps and bounds since he was diagnosed with aphasia disorder in February. of 2022. The whole family was aware that the actor would suffer a progressive degeneration, but what perhaps they could not imagine is that the health of the protagonist of films like El Protegido was going to decline like this.
"She (Marlene) says that she is not very sure that her son recognizes her, that his behavior is slow and a bit aggressive," he began, explaining, thus referring to the complications that Bruce is experiencing as a result of his illness. As Gliem explains, in the words of the actor's mother, it would even be impossible to have a chat with him.

"Today there are no treatments for the disease, a reality that we hope can change in the coming years," the family wished in the statement in which they announced the worsening of his condition, a few days ago, making it clear that they want the actor Live as full a life as possible within your circumstances.
If anything has remained in all this time, it is that the actor has the unconditional support of his wife, Emma Heming, his ex-wife, Demi Moore, and their five daughters, Rumer, Scout, Tallulah, Mabel and Evelyn; but the situation would be very hard for everyone. After making the actor's diagnosis official, his three eldest daughters admitted they were overwhelmed by the situation.
