Celine Dion’s Sister Spills On The Singer’s Health As She Battles Stiff Person Syndrome: ‘We Can’t Find Any Medicine That Works’ 

Celine Dion’s sister, Claudette Dion, has disclosed that the famous Canadian singer is struggling with her health because she has a condition called stiff person syndrome.

Stiff person syndrome is a very rare and incurable neurological condition that causes uncontrollable muscle spasms.

Speaking in a chat with Le Journal de Montreal (via SheMazing), Claudette spoke about how Celine’s life has been since she had to cancel her world tour. Claudette admitted that her sister needs to take a break to rest.

However, the Canadian crooner’s sister added that the 55-year-old mom-of-three is ‘working hard’ to see if there’s a cure out there for what some medical professionals refer to as ‘statue syndrome.’

“She’s listening to the top researchers in the field of this rare disease as much as possible,” Claudette said.

Claudette acknowledged how devoted her sister is to her performances, stating that,

“She always gives her all, striving to excel and be at the top of her game however there comes a time when your heart and body are sending you a message.”

Her sister noted, “[Performing is] innate to her, she’s disciplined in every area of her life.”

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

The condition leaves sufferers as “human statues” as it progressively locks the body into rigid positions, ultimately leaving them unable to walk or talk.

While there is no cure for the condition, there are treatments to slow down the progression, with Celine revealing she is doing all she can to minimise symptoms.
