In light of Bruce Willis’ diagnosis with dementia, his wife, Emma Hemming, is taking steps to create her own line of brain-health products.
“We always talk about breast health or heart health, but brain health was just something that I had never heard of,” she told People exclusively.
“My brain was suffering, and I could feel it. Why is the focus on the rest of our body when really our brain is our biggest asset and the one that we should be really looking after? I found that when you put your brain first and when you are taking care of your brain, your whole body benefits.”
For those concerned about qualifications, rest assured that Heming has consulted with various professionals when designing the line. Most of all, Heming is looking forward to a greater sense of purpose.
“I’m able to call an expert and speak to some of the most incredible doctors. So I guess I have a new purpose, and I’m so excited that I’m able to share what I’m learning with everyone,” she continues. “It’s like a fire’s been lit. It’s my new purpose and here I am. I hate that it’s me. I wish it wasn’t, but you know what? I’m not going to be quiet. I am going to use my voice and through action, awareness and conversation, that creates change.”
