Claudette Dion, famous Quebec singer and older sister to music icon Celine Dion, recently shed light on the ongoing health battle her beloved sister faces. Celine has been focused on overcoming stiff person syndrome, a rare neurological condition affecting just one in a million people.

Progress has been difficult according to Claudette. “She is working hard, but she does not have control of her muscles. Vocal cords are muscles, and the heart is also a muscle. That is what really hits me,” she expressed. The illness leads to painful, crippling muscle spasms that risk injury with any loss of balance. Breathing can also become labored if the thoracic area is compromised.

After initially delaying then cancelling her remaining “Courage World Tour” dates through 2024 due to worsening symptoms, Celine’s determination to get back on stage remains unchanged. Fans continue flooding the Fondation Maman Dion charity with messages of hope and prayer. “People tell us they love her and they are praying for her,” Claudette shared gratefully.

Her shining career built on discipline and perfection only amplifies the difficulty, but Celine presses on in her private battle. Claudette hopes researchers find answers to free her celebrated sister from this awful illness’ iron grip. Through it all, Celine Dion’s indomitable spirit shines as a light for all who admire her global superstardom and courageous fight against a formidable foe.
