The terrible news of the day

Due to a recent diagnosis of the rare neurological condition known as stiff-person syndrome, Céline Dion, the legendary Canadian singer, has postponed some dates on her European tour.

In two videos posted on her social media accounts on Thursday, Dion stated that her debilitating illness prevents her from “singing the way I’m used to.”

Spasm sickness, increasing muscle rigidity, and stiff-person syndrome are the causes of this. According to The Stiff Person Syndrome Research Foundation, patients may be immobile, unable to care for themselves, or both.

According to Dion, her muscle spasms “affect every element of my regular living.”

She continued, sobbing as she admitted that her illness made it difficult for her to move and prevented her from speaking as she was accustomed to.

She continued, “Facing these challenges and talking about everything that’s happened to me has been quite difficult for me.” I’ve had health problems for a very long time.

Dion expressed her disappointment that her illness prevented her from starting the European leg of her tour in February. The following year has been chosen as the new date for her 2023 tour. Eight of Dion’s scheduled performances between May 31 and July 17, 2023, have been postponed.

The My Heart Will Go On singer assured fans that she is working closely with her family, medical professionals, and doctors to get better.

The five-time Grammy winner stated the desire to return to the stage.

I’m just a singer,” she continued. “I’ve been doing that all my life,” she said. And I find the most enjoyment in doing it.

Premier of Québec François Legault expressed sympathy for Dion’s condition on Thursday morning. Legault told reporters that he hopes Dion “gets well as soon as possible” on his way to the question and answer session of the National Assembly.

A children’s choir performed My Heart Will Go On in Toronto’s Queen’s Park as part of their tribute to Celine Dion.

To increase her strength and performance, Dion claimed she meets daily with a sports medicine therapist.

“I sincerely miss you. Dion told her audience, “I miss seeing all of you. “Normally, when I perform, I give everything I’ve got, but right now, my health prevents me from doing so for you.”

This year, Dion was forced to cancel her world tour because of “severe and persistent muscle spasms.”

Information on Dion’s tour and any scheduled reschedules may be found on her website.

The National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences estimates that there are less than 5,000 cases of stiff-person syndrome in the country. Despite the fact that symptoms can manifest at any point in a patient’s life, adulthood is when they are most frequently observed.
