Bruce Willis’ daughter has shared a heartbreaking message in the wake of his health issues.

Earlier this year, the Die Hard actor’s family revealed that he had been diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia, after previously sharing his struggles with aphasia.

The 68-year-old’s loved ones, including his wife, Emma Heming Willis and his children, have since raised awareness for FTD, while also leaning on one another to stay strong amid tough times.

Taking to Instagram, Rumer – who the Hollywood icon shares with ex-wife Demi Moore – uploaded a poignant throwback picture as a child, with her father proudly grinning at her.

‘Really missing my papa today,’ the 35-year-old captioned the sweet post.

Fans and famous faces were quick to rally around the new mom in the comments below.

Her sibling, Tallulah, simply penned: ‘Love you sister.’

A follower wrote: ‘There is nothing worse missing them while being with them! Heart wrenching! I’ve been thru it. Stay strong for him….he’s in there somewhere and loves you immensely [sic]!’

‘He loves you so much too,’ another agreed.

An Instagram user said: ‘No matter how old we are, we never stop missing our parents . Go look for him hug him, tell him how much you love him he will feel it!

‘And it will make his day. Never stop telling him how much you love him. Xo.’

‘It’s so hard I know…. I send you all strength. My dad had dementia. Big big tight hugs xoxo,’ a commenter added.

The family have had a tough few years as they initially shared the news of Bruce’s aphasia diagnosis, explaining that he would be taking a step back from the spotlight to concentrate on his health.

In February, they posted a lengthy joint statement, confirming that he had since been diagnosed with FTD.

Frontotemporal dementia is an ‘uncommon’ form of the disease that causes the sufferer problems with behavior and language – there are currently no treatments for the condition.

Tallulah recently appeared on the Drew Barrymore Show where she was asked for an update on how Bruce is coping.

When questioned on why they had been so open about his condition, she told the host: ‘Well, I think it’s two-fold. On one hand, it’s who we are as a family, but also, it’s really important for us to spread awareness about FTD.

‘If we can take something that we’re struggling with as a family, and individually, to help other people, to turn it around to make something beautiful about it, that’s really special for us.

‘Part of what’s been a really beautiful way for me to heal through this is becoming an archeologist to my dad’s stuff, his world, his little trinkets and doodads.’

Discussing how his health is now, Tallulah added: ‘He is the same, which I think in this regard I’ve learned is the best thing you can ask for.

‘I see love when I’m with him. It’s my dad and he loves me, which is really special.’
