Celine Dion Confirms She’s Diagnosed with Rare Neurological Disease

Celine Dion announced she will postpone her Europe tour to recover from a rare neurological disease called stiff-person syndrome.

Canadian superstar Celine Dion announced her Europe tour is postponed after being diagnosed with a rare neurological disease. In an emotional video message on Instagram, the “My Heart Will Go On” songstress confirmed that she was diagnosed with stiff-person syndrome.

“While we’re still learning about this rare condition, we now know this is what’s been causing all of the spasms that I’ve been having,” she shared. “Unfortunately, these spasms affect 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.”

She is currently working with a therapist to gain back her strength and perform again.

Celine Dion to her fans: I miss you all

The singer is looking forward to performing once more and that she misses all of her fans. “I miss seeing all of you, being on the stage, performing for you. I always give 100% when I do my shows. But my condition is not allowing me to give you that right now.”

The 2023 dates will be moved to 2024.

Celine, whose career included several awards and is considered the best-selling Canadian artist, is behind the songs such as “It’s All Coming Back to Me Now,” “That’s The Way It Is,” and “The Power of Love.”

She is also a mother of three boys: Rene-Charles and twins Eddy and Nelson with her late husband Rene Angelil.
