Emma Heming continues to share Bruce Willis‘ updates on her Instagram handle and actively educates people on dementia.

She started by saying,
“I have to tell you this story, and I’m going to try to do it without crying, because when Evelyn told me this story, I became an absolute sea (of tears),”
After this her daughter let her know, that she has been researching and studying the disease Willis is suffering from in her downtime in school, and thus came across a rare information that many are not aware of.
“Evelyn said to me the other day ‘did you know that people with dementia can become severely dehydrated?’ I said no and asked her how she knew.–I said, ‘Evelyn, we’ll always make sure daddy has a bottle of water handy. Thank you for letting me know,'”
She then further continued saying,
“But the most loving and supportive thing you can do is to be curious and inform yourself about your father’s illness.—–One of the best things we can do as caregivers – and as friends and family – is to educate ourselves about our loved one’s illness so that we can be there for them and support them in the best way possible.”
Although the actor’s health is slowly declining the internet is happy that his family is sticking with him during such a tough time.
