“Our family wanted to begin by expressing our deepest gratitude for the incredible outpouring of love, support and wonderful stories we have all received since sharing Bruce’s initial diagnosis. […] With that in mind, we wanted to update you on our beloved husband, father and friend as we now have a better understanding of what he is going through.

Since we announced Bruce’s aphasia diagnosis in Spring 2022, his condition has improved and we now have a more accurate diagnosis: frontotemporal dementia. […] Unfortunately, the communication problems are just a symptom of the illness Bruce is facing. Though painful, it’s a relief to finally have a clear diagnosis.

Bruce has always believed in using his voice in the world to help others […] We know in our hearts that if he could today, he would respond by drawing global attention and connecting with those who are also struggling with this disease.

Bruce has always found joy in life and has helped everyone he knows do the same […] We were so moved by the love you all shared for our dear husband, father and friend during this difficult time. Your compassion, understanding and respect will allow us to help Bruce live the fullest life possible.”
