The statement went on to announce Williams was diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia, the same disease that's plagued actor Bruce Willis.

"In 2023, after undergoing a battery of medical tests, Wendy was officially diagnosed with primary progressive aphasia and frontotemporal dementia (FTD)," the statement revealed.

Aphasia is a condition "affecting language and communication abilities," and FTD is a progressive disorder impacting "behavior and cognitive functions."

Williams' team noted that both conditions "have already presented significant hurdles in Wendy's life."

The statement additionally thanked her current care team and the "extraordinary work" of specialists at Weill Cornell Medicine, adding that "receiving a diagnosis has enabled Wendy to receive the medical care she requires."

The former talk show host's camp made a point to note that Williams is "still able to do many things for herself" and the decision to announce her diagnosis was to "advocate for understanding and compassion for Wendy."
