Toronto (Canada), Dec 19 (EFE).- According to her sister Claudette Dion, Canadian singer Céline Dion has lost control of her muscles as a result of the neurological disease she has been suffering for years, known as stiff-person syndrome (SPS).
In an interview with Canadian media 7 Jours, the singer’s sister explained that Céline Dion, “is working hard, but she doesn’t have control over her muscles” and can no longer sing.
“In our dreams and in hers, the idea is to return to the stage. In what state? I do not know.” The vocal cords are muscles and the heart is also a muscle,” Claudette Dion added.
Céline Dion, 55, revealed in October 2021 that she suffers from a disease that affects her nervous system and causes muscle spasms, which forced her to cancel concerts in Las Vegas.
A year later, in December 2022, the illness also led her to cancel her 2023 European and world tours.
At a time, the two-time Oscar and multiple Grammy Award winner said in a statement that she had been suffering from health problems for some time and that the spasms were affecting all aspects of her daily life, including her ability to walk.
Céline Dion added that her vocal cords were also affected, so she could no longer sing as she used to.
Claudette Dion explained that one of the problems her sister faces is that the disease she suffers is so rare that its medical research to find a solution is limited. EFE
