Emma Heming Willis, wife of Bruce Willis, has become a great support for the actor since he retired from acting more than a year ago after being diagnosed first with aphasia and later with frontotemporal dementia. Some illnesses that have rapidly diminished his health, and that have made his entire family turn to him, including his five daughters.
Especially Evelyn, the youngest, who at only nine years old has managed to make her mother cry with a tender gesture that she has had to take care of her father. This is how her mother has told it in her Instagram Stories, where she very excitedly recounted how Evelyn has become involved in Willis's care as she could only have given her young age: focusing on the small details.
"I have to tell you this story, and I'm going to try to do it without crying," Heming began in his Stories, visibly moved, before beginning to narrate the tender anecdote, which made him "cry profusely" when it happened with his daughter.
Heming says that his daughter Evelyn came home from school the other day and said, out of the blue: "Did you know that people with dementia can become terribly dehydrated?" idea of that. When she asked the little girl where she learned that detail, Evelyn replied that she was at school and had free time, so she looked up "dementia fun facts."
"It's not funny, but it's kind of funny," her mother acknowledges, as she tells the story, "She's her father's daughter, that's clear."
Thus, Heming told his daughter that what they had to do then was never allow her father to be without a bottle of water in hand, with which his daughter was satisfied with a job well done. "I told her, the nicest and most compassionate thing you can do is stay curious about your father's illness."
The tender anecdote comes just a few days after the actor's wife gave some new details about the popular actor's state of health, which were discouraging to say the least.
As always, Heming was very grateful for the messages of support and good wishes that come to her from the hundreds of thousands of followers of the actor around the world, and she stated with emotion that she felt very lucky that her husband was able to receive such an amount of love and support in this hard stage.
However, the protagonist of La Jungla de Cristal is going through a delicate moment, and his options are not too many, since there is no treatment for his disease today.
On the bright side, Willis became a grandfather for the first time last April as his eldest daughter, Rumer, gave birth to a daughter, Louetta. A baby with whom everyone is completely in love, and who has been welcomed into the family with all the enthusiasm in the world.
Heming also recently launched a new project, Make Time Wellness, which focuses on brain health in female wellness routines. 5% of each sale of her products will be donated to Hilarity for Charity, a non-profit organization dedicated to caring for families affected by Alzheimer's disease, as well as supporting brain health research and education. .
