Singer Celine Dion, 55, is facing a challenging phase in her battle against stiff-person syndrome, a rare neurological condition, as shared by her sister Claudette Dion.

Claudette revealed that Celine’s ability to control certain bodily movements has decreased, saying, “Her control over her muscles is dwindling.” The renowned singer, known for her determination and hard work, is currently dealing with the impact of the disorder on her muscle control. Claudette expressed the sadness of witnessing Celine’s struggles, highlighting the singer’s determination and their shared goal of returning to the stage, although the likelihood remains uncertain.

A year ago, Celine Dion publicly announced her diagnosis of stiff-person syndrome, and the condition has now led to difficulties in controlling muscle movements. In May, she canceled her Courage World Tour due to the challenges posed by the disorder, characterized by painful muscle spasms and rigidity.

In a May Instagram post, Celine expressed her remorse for disappointing her fans and explained the challenges of touring amid her health struggles. The singer is currently under the care of specialists in stiff-person syndrome in the Las Vegas area.

Despite the health obstacles, Celine recently spent precious time with her 22-year-old son René-Charles and 13-year-old twins Nelson and Eddy, attending a hockey match on October 30. The family enjoyed an evening watching the Montreal Canadiens take on the Vegas Golden Knights.

Supporters and well-wishers continue to support Celine Dion as she faces the complexities of stiff-person syndrome, and health updates will be provided as they become available.
