The legendary Canadian singer, Celine Dionshe no longer has “muscle control,” according to her older sister Claudette.

A year after the famous artist was forced to cancel her world tour last December, her sister has hinted that it may be some time before she returns to the stage following her battle with a neurological disorder called stiff person syndrome (Stiff Person syndrome – SPS).

Celine Dion’s condition, which is progressive and incurable, causes the body to “attack” its own nerve cells and severely affects mobility.

What breaks my heart is that she was always disciplined.” Claudette told 7 Jours and added: “It’s true that in both our dreams and hers, the goal is for her to return to the stage. In what capacity? I do not know. Because it’s a one in a million case, scientists haven’t done as much research because it doesn’t affect many people».

Referring to Celine Dion’s family’s charity, the Maman Dion Foundation, Claudette said:Some people have given up hope because this is a disease that is not widely known. If you only knew the number of phone calls the Foundation is getting about Celine… People are telling us they love her and are praying for her. He gets so many messages and gifts».

Her sister also reported that despite working with leading researchers in the field, her sister saw little improvement in her health. “We can’t find any medicine that works, but having hope is important».

The star first revealed her diagnosis in December 2022 via an Instagram post and months later canceled her world tour, which was scheduled to begin in late 2023.

Despite her ‘battle’ with terminal illness, Celine Dion has not given up on her plans to return to the stage, according to her sister.
