Canadian singer Celine Dion is battling stiff person syndrome, a rare neurological disorder that affects her muscles and mobility.

Her sister, Claudette Dion, expressed uncertainty about Celine’s return to the stage due to the unpredictable nature of the disease.

“She’s working hard, but she doesn’t have control over her muscles,” said Claudette Dion, the singer’s older sister.

“What breaks my heart is that she’s always been disciplined. She’s always worked hard,” she continued.

“It’s true that in both our dreams and hers, the goal is to return to the stage,” she explained. “In what capacity? I don’t know.”

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

“Some people have lost hope because it’s all illness that isn’t well known,” lamented Claudette.

“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,” she said.

“She listens to the great researchers studying this rare disease as much as possible,” affirmed Claudette Dion.

“We can’t find medicine, but giving hope, I find that is important,” she said.

“I know that morally, mentally, she is strong. She is not depressed at all … she really has the joy of living. We will get through this,” said Celine’s sister.

Assuring that Celine, “wants to come back, that’s for sure.”

Despite the challenges, Celine remains determined and receives an outpouring of support from fans.

Stiff-person syndrome causes fluctuating muscle rigidity and heightened sensitivity to stimuli, making mobility difficult.

While treatments can address symptoms, there is no cure for the disorder.
