Celine Dion’s Sister Updated Fans on Her Battle With Stiff Person Syndrome

Claudette Dion, 74, has just given Celine Dion‘s fans an update on her younger sister’s battle with Stiff Person Syndrome, which the 55-year-old “That’s The Way It Is” singer told fans she had been diagnosed with back in December 2022.

According to Journaldesfemmes.fr, Claudette updated Celine’s fans on the Quebec TV show, Bonsoir Bonsoir, and said that her sister is “in a determined state of mind” despite the setbacks from the rare neurological disorder. Stiff Person Syndrome causes uncontrollable muscle spasms that can lead to other medical complications, with Celine previously telling fans it has even affected her ability to sing, as she said she “cannot use my vocal cords to sing the way I am used to.”

Claudette Dion Updates Celine Dion’s Fans On Her Sister’s Health

Last month, the “Because You Loved Me” singer announced that she was forced to cancel all of the remaining dates on her Courage World Tour due to her struggles with the condition. She told fans that she was disappointed to let them down, but they had nothing but support for her in the comments section on Instagram, and said that they just wanted her to focus on her health.

Talking about her sister’s determination to fight the condition, Claudette told host Jean-Philippe Wauthier: “I know she’s working hard.” “We’re all crossing our fingers, and I’m glad people are concerned,” she added. Wauthier chimed in and said, “The whole world is concerned,” to which Claudette replied, “She is working hard, and we are confident that we will succeed. It can’t be a story like this.”

Insider Previously Said Celine Dion Can ‘Barely Move’

Last month, an insider told RadarOnline that the musician is having difficulty walking and “experiences periods of intense pain that come out of nowhere.” A source also told the pub that the Canadian superstar “has the best medical team money can buy, but things aren’t looking good.” “Her disease is incurable,” the source added. “And as hard as she’s worked at it with doctors and therapists, she simply isn’t getting better. To be honest, she can barely move.”

It was also reported that the “My Heart Will Go On” singer sold her $30M Las Vegas mansion in order to move back to Canada to be with her family through this difficult time. “Celine has 11 brothers and sisters living in Canada,” a source told Radar, adding, “It’s an amazing, loving support system for her during a time of personal crisis.”
