“My dad is so beloved, and that’s been so evident in the transparency with which we’ve been sharing,” she said.

“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 and sisters Scout and Tallulah have been candid about their father’s decline over the last year, sharing regular updates on social media.

Bruce’s wife, Emma Heming Willis, has also shared how her husband’s condition has affected him and the whole family publicly.

“We have a family unit that is built on mutual respect and admiration. And simply, I just love and adore the man I married.

“I’m so proud of what we have and continue to create. So, happy crystal anniversary to us!”
