Celine Dion’s Sister Reveals Singer “No Longer Has Control Over Muscles” As Search For Cure Continues

The 75-year-old sister of famous singer Celine Dion, Claudette, claims that Dion, who suffers from stiff person syndrome, no longer has “control over her muscles.” The singer stated that she had a neurological condition in December of last year, cancelling her international tour. According to her elder sister, it might take some time before Celine retakes the stage. The degenerative and incurable nature of Celine’s disease makes her body assault her nerve cells, which significantly impairs her movement. Stiff-person syndrome is a rare neurological disorder that affects the muscles and causes severe muscle stiffness and spasms. Despite the challenges she faces, Celine Dion remains determined to continue her music career and has been exploring different treatment options to manage her symptoms. Her sister, Claudette, emphasizes the importance of patience and understanding as Celine navigates this problematic journey towards regaining control over her muscles.

Claudette told 7 Jours,

“She’s working hard, but she doesn’t have control over her muscles. 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.”

Messages of empathy for the celebrity were sent to Fondation Maman Dion, Celine’s family charity. Furthermore, Claudette said:

“The vocal cords are muscles, and the heart is also a muscle. This is what comes to get me. Because it’s 1 out of a million case, the scientists haven’t done that much research because it didn’t affect that many people.”

Some people have lost hope because it’s all an illness that isn’t well known. If only you knew the number of phone calls the Foundation gets about Celine! People tell us they love her, and they’re praying for her. She gets so many messages, presents, and blessed crucifixes.”

Claudette has disclosed that her sister’s health has not improved much, even though she works with “the top researchers in the field.” She stated to the Montreal Journal:

“We can’t find any medicine that works, but having hope is important.”
