New Delhi: After receiving a diagnosis of aphasia, a language illness that impairs communication, Die Hard actor Bruce Willis, who will be retiring from acting, received a tonne of support from his fans. Scout Willis, the daughter of Bruce Willis and his ex-wife Demi Moore, posted a few images of her father on her Instagram stories and thanked her followers for their support.

Thank you for showing my daddio and my entire family such kindness and beautiful love."
The 67-year-old actor will be retiring from performing after being diagnosed with aphasia, according to a joint statement signed by Bruce Willis' wife Emma Heming Willis, ex-wife Demi Moore, and kids Rumer, Scout, Tallulah, Mabel, and Evelyn.
"To Bruce's incredible fans, as a family, we wanted to convey that our darling Bruce has been going through some health challenges and has just recently been diagnosed with aphasia, which is affecting his cognitive abilities," the statement said. Because of this and after careful contemplation, Bruce is leaving the profession that has meant a great deal to him. Our family is going through a tremendously difficult time right now, so we greatly appreciate all of your love, sympathy, and support. We are dealing with this as a solid family and wanted to invite his fans because we are aware of how important they are to both of you. Live it up, as Bruce usually says, and that's exactly what we're going to do.
