What is aphasia, the condition Bruce Willis lives with? 

Aphasia is a communication disability caused by damage or changes to the language networks of the brain. Often considered a difficulty with “getting words out”, aphasia can in fact impact every aspect of a person’s life. A person with aphasia can have difficulty speaking, understanding others, reading, writing and using numbers. It impacts everything from conversations, negotiating, expressing emotions, storytelling, asking questions, to writing an email. When communication is affected, so is the ability to share information, engage in relationships and interact meaningfully with the world. Depression and other negative mood changes are common in people with aphasia, as is a reduction in their self-perceived quality of life.
