An emotional Celine Dion made a heartbreaking announcement to her fans today revealing that she has shared an incurable neurological disorder called the stiff person syndrome that can turn people into human statues.
She said: “As you know, I’ve always been an open book. And I wasn’t ready to say anything before – but I’m ready now. I’ve been dealing with problems with my health for a long time. And it’s been really difficult for me to face these challenges and talk about everything that I’ve been going through.”
Dion then revealed she had been diagnosed with Stiff Person Syndrome (SPS), which is a “a very rare neurological disorder called the stiff person syndrome which affects 1 in a million people.” She continued:
“While we’re still learning about this rare condition, we now know this is what’s been causing all the spasms I’ve been having. Unfortunately, these spasms affect every aspect of my daily life, sometimes causing difficulties when I walk and not allowing me to use my vocal cords to sing the way I’m used to.
“I have a great team of doctors working alongside me to help me get better and my precious children who are supporting me and giving me help.
“I’m working hard with my sports medicine therapist every day to build back my strength and my ability to perform again but I have to admit it’s been a struggle.
“I miss you so much.
“I miss seeing all of you being on the stage performing for you.
“I always give 100 percent when I do my show but my condition is not allowing me to give you that right now.
“For me to reach you again I have no choice but to concentrate on my health at this moment and I have hope that i’m on the road to recovery,” she said.
