Celine Dion has faced more challenges in her health journey. She was diagnosed with a condition called stiff person syndrome, which doesn’t have a cure. This news was really tough for her, and it made her take a break from singing and everything she’s used to doing.
Since she got diagnosed in 2022, it’s been a mix of good and bad times for Dion. She had to cancel the rest of her world tour in May 2023 and her family couldn’t find medicine that helped. But, in November, there was a bit of good news. Dion surprised her fans by showing up at a hockey game in Las Vegas, looking happy with her three sons. It was her first public appearance in three years, and many people thought she looked great.
But, there’s not-so-good news for Celine Dion’s fans at the beginning of the new year. Recent reports say that she’s still having problems with her vocal cords, and it’s not what her fans were hoping for.
According to Radar Online, the singer of “All by Myself” is really upset about these ongoing issues with her voice. She really wants to go back on stage and sing for her fans. The report even says that she’s so eager to perform again that she’s willing to sing while sitting in a wheelchair if that’s what it takes to get back on stage.
Celine Dion is getting a lot of treatment from doctors and physical therapists, but her older sister, Claudette, says things don’t look good.
Claudette explained, “She can’t control her muscles, and vocal cords are muscles.” In simple terms, it means she can’t use her muscles well, and this includes her vocal cords, which she uses to sing.
Claudette said they all hope Celine can go back to the stage, but it’s uncertain how that will happen. Living with stiff person syndrome often means using a wheelchair. Some reports say Celine doesn’t mind the idea of using a wheelchair, but the really tough part for her is not being able to sing like before.
An insider shared that Celine would be happy just sitting and singing to entertain people, but her voice isn’t coming back the way she needs it to for performing or recording. It’s a big struggle for her.
“She has spasms in her vocal cords. She can sing fine — just like you know Celine for a few notes, then a spasm kicks in and throws what she’s singing completely out of whack.
“Sadly, it’s doesn’t seem to be repairable — whether through surgery or therapy.”
Our hearts go out to Celine Dion and her loved ones at this difficult time.
