A year ago, Celine Dion publicly revealed her diagnosis of stiff-person syndrome, and the ailment has now caused complications in controlling muscle movements. In May, she called off her Courage World Tour due to the difficulties imposed by the disorder, characterized by agonizing muscle spasms and rigidity.
In a May Instagram post, Celine expressed her regret for disappointing her admirers and detailed the challenges of touring amidst her health difficulties. The singer is presently under the care of specialists in stiff-person syndrome in the Las Vegas vicinity.
Despite the health obstacles, Celine recently enjoyed valuable moments 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 relished an evening witnessing the Montreal Canadiens confront the Vegas Golden Knights.
