Last year in December, singer Celine Dion shared some devastating news with her fans. She revealed that she has been diagnosed with Stiff-Person Syndrome. The condition is a rare autoimmune neurological disorder. Some of its characteristics include muscle spasms, which are usually triggered by noise, touch, and stress.
The condition is so rare that it only affects one in one million people. Through her journey with this condition, the singer has been staying strong. Her sister Claudette Dion has been keeping her fans updated about the singer’s prognosis and health.
Her sister Claudette said to the Le Journal de Montreal, “I am confident that life will give her back what she gave because she is an extremely intelligent woman, so very generous and talented and in love with life as well.”

“While we’re still learning about this rare condition, we now know this is what’s been causing all the spasms I’ve been having,” she added.
“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.
“It hurts me to tell you that I won’t be ready to restart my tour in Europe in February,” the singer regretfully.
