Singer Celine Dion’s battle with rare neurological disorder called stiff-person syndrome has worsened. Her sister Claudette Dion recently revealed that the celebrated singer has ‘lost control over her muscles.’
CELINE DION’S SISTER SHARES SINGER’S HEALTH UPDATE
Speaking to 7 Jours, Claudette said, “What breaks my heart is that she’s always been disciplined. She’s always worked hard. Our mother always told her, ‘You’re going to do it well, you’re going to do it properly.'” “It’s true that in both our dreams and hers, the goal is to return to the stage. In what capacity? I don’t know,” she added.
In December 2022, Celine shared her diagnosis with her fans after canceling several shows where she was said to perform.
During a social media interaction, Celine shared, “Recently, I have been diagnosed with a very rare neurological disorder called ‘stiff person syndrome,’ which affects something like one in a million people.” She stated that the condition “affects every aspect of my daily life, sometimes causing difficulties when I walk and not allowing me to use my vocal cords to sing the way I’m used to.”
WHAT IS STIFF-PERSON SYNDROME?
The stiff-person syndrome is a rare neurological disease that attacks the central nervous system. The syndrome is said to be triggered by noise, distress, and even any kind of physical touch.
Celine Dion is a popular singer who is known for crooning hits like ‘My Heart Will Go On’ and ‘Because You Loved Me’ among more.
Celine was last seen in the romantic comedy, Love Again, which starred global icon Priyanka Chopra Jonas in the lead role.
