    She wrote online: "FTD is short for frontotemporal dementia or degeneration.

    "FTD effects the front and temporal lobes of the brain. Today there is no cure or single treatment for this disease."

    The model said it was "one of many reasons" why it's vital to raise awareness of the health condition.

    She added: "Welcome to World FTD Awareness Week 2023. I'm passionate about raising awareness for this disease called frontotemporal dementia that has entered into our family’s world," Emma explained. "My hope is you will learn and take away something new and helpful from this week. I'm here to let the next family know that you are not alone and that there is understanding and hope within our strong FTD community."

    Fans flocked to support the star online and thanked her for her advocacy.

    One person said: "You are doing an excellent job raising awareness!"

    A second added: "Beautiful person doing beautiful things for so many people. Thank you for all the good you’re doing and for being a positive role model not only for your family but for so many other people. Their lives will be changed “for good” because of you. Thank you."

    "You are amazing. Thank you for bringing this subject in the public eye! xx," while a third penned.

    Whereas another typed: "You are an inspiration. Thank you."

    A fifth put: "Thanks for sharing this I’m so thankful that more emphasis is being put on caregiver awareness. Being a caregiver of a loved one with a chronic disease is one of the hardest jobs I’ve ever had. Watching our daughter, 33, lose her life to bvFTD after 4 years of 24/7 care in our home, has taken a toll on my health. I’m working through my grief and learning to care for myself as I navigate this part of the journey. I’m excited to see the increased awareness and support for those affected by FTD. Having others truly understand this heartbreaking journey, helps give strength and comfort to everyone affected Emma, your enthusiasm and continued presence in our FTD community, helps keep me going as I try to do my part in spreading awareness and education in our rural communities. Thank you sweet lady.
