In a previous interview with Fox News, the actress revealed that her father, Bruce Willis, is doing 'great.' Rumer Willis further explained that she thinks sharing openly about her father's Frontotemporal dementia condition could support others who are facing similar situations with their loved ones.  

"I think if there’s any way sharing our experience brings hope — whatever comes forward as a family — that can have an effect and bring any sort of hope, comfort to someone else experiencing that, then to me, that’s … everything," she said.
