The reason American actor Bruce Willis fell prey to the cognitive disorder Aphasia is unknown. While the family did share the sad news of him retiring as an actor due to the onset condition, they haven't revealed what was the cause for it and when it all began.


After reading the heartbreaking note from Willis' wife Emma Heming Willis which she shared on her Instagram handle, Bruce Willis' fans are concerned that the actor may have suffered a stroke that triggered the Aphasia condition.


For the unknown, Aphasia is a cognitive disorder that leaves the person unable to speak, write, or communicate in any way. The condition gradually worsens. According to the Mayo Clinic, there are three types of the condition, including Broca’s aphasia, global aphasia, and Wernicke’s aphasia. All three types snatch the person's ability to speak and/or understand language. The condition is caused by damage to the brain or even a stroke. As per medical experts, those who are diagnosed with aphasia suffer a stroke beforehand, although not every single person with the illness has had one.


Hence, when fans learned that the actor has Aphasia, they ended up getting concerned about whether he suffered a stroke which caused him the cognitive disorder. However, what happened is still unknown.
