A disease that prevents communication properly

According to specialists from the American Mayo Clinic, aphasia often occurs after a stroke or head trauma and prevents the patient from communicating normally. “It can affect your ability to speak, write, and understand language, both spoken and written,” they explain.

Bruce Willis first distinguished himself in the 1980s with a recurring role in the “Moonlight” series alongside Cybill Shepherd, but it was the action film “Die Hard” in 1988 that made him an international star as the invincible John McClane. The saga had two sequels in the 1990s, confirming the notoriety of Bruce Willis who had become one of the references of the genre.
