When she finally had to make her big comeback on stage as part of her international tour, which had already been postponed several times, Celine Dion was once again forced to cancel many concerts due to her state of health. “I was not ready to talk about what I had to go through. I was diagnosed with a very rare neurological disorder, called in English Stiff-person syndrome. We do not yet know everything about this rare disease, but we now know that this is the cause of the muscle spasms I suffer from. Unfortunately, these spasms affect my daily life on many levels. I sometimes have difficulty walking and I can not always use my ropes vocals to sing as I would like,” she wrote on Instagram in December 2022.
Since this announcement, the news concerning the convalescence of the singer are extremely rare in the press. However, his sister, Claudette Dion, came out of silence on Tuesday January 31, 2023, by giving an interview to the Journal de Montréal. “I didn’t want to do the show of ‘bawling’ online,” she said first, to explain the fact that she did not speak sooner about her sister’s health. “I had a lot of calls, but I turned off my phone because I had difficulty talking about it,” she also added, before specifying that Celine Dion is currently on the side of Denver, a city located in the state of Colorado in the USA.

Claudette Dion on her sister: “She didn’t really have a teenager”
Claudette Dion clarified that her sister is “surrounded by specialists”, whose goal is to manage to treat her as effectively as possible. “Since the age of 12 she has been working, this child. She has not really had adolescence. She has always worked. She has always given herself. It is a choice. no pity. But at the same time, to have given so much and to be able to enjoy the rest of your life with your aging children. I can’t imagine that. She’s so much in her place. Rather than crying over her fate, I try to send her positive vibes and to ensure that one day she goes back on stage”, also underlined the sister of Celine Dion.
