"As a result of this, and after considerable thought, Bruce has decided to leave a career that has meant so much to him. We're going through this as a strong family unit," the statement added, "and we wanted to invite his fans in because we know how much he means to you, as you do to him." "As Bruce often says, Live it up, and that is exactly what we intend to do together."
Aphasia can impact a person's ability to talk, write, and interpret both spoken and written language, according to the Mayo Clinic. A slow-growing brain tumor or an illness that produces progressive, permanent damage can also cause the condition to develop over time.
The cause of the 67-year-old actor's aphasia was not disclosed by Willis' family.
