In a touching video, Celine Dion confesses that she has an incurable neurological condition. Celine Dion announced to her followers in a video that she had been diagnosed with a terminal neurological illness while fighting back the tears.

The 54-year-old Canadian native spoke out on Instagram, “You are aware that I’ve always been honest. And now that I’m ready to speak, I wasn’t prepared to do so earlier. I’ve had issues with my health for a very long time. And facing these difficulties and sharing everything I’ve been through has been incredibly difficult.”

Stiff Person Syndrome (SPS), which “affects about one in a million people,” was then revealed to be Dion’s diagnosis.

The Cleveland Clinic defines SPS as “an uncommon central nervous system condition that causes autoimmune movement (the brain and spinal cord). People with this ailment first notice a tightening of their trunk muscles, which is gradually followed by the emergence of stiffness and rigidity in the legs and other body muscles.”

Dion described the same challenges she has been experiencing, such as mobility limitations.

“We now know this has been causing all of the spasms I’ve been experiencing, even though we are still learning about this uncommon condition. Regrettably, these spasms interfere with every aspect of my daily life, sometimes making it difficult for me to walk and preventing me from using my vocal cords to sing as I normally would.”

The mother of three posted two pre-recorded videos—one in English and one in French—informing supporters that she would be devoting more time to her health and would have to cancel the European portion of her tour.

“I’m sorry to tell you today that I won’t be prepared to resume my European tour in February. My precious children are supporting me and giving me hope, and a great team of doctors is working with me to get better.”

The “My Heart Will Go On” singer postponed the final North American dates of her “Courage World Tour” in January, citing the need to “recover from recent health issues.”

“Every day, I put in a lot of effort with the help of my sports medicine therapist to regain my strength and my performance capacity. But I have to say that it hasn’t been easy. I know how to sing. I’ve spent my entire life doing it. And I enjoy doing it the most. “She fessed up.

The five-time Grammy Award winner broke down in tears when she addressed her devoted following.

“I do miss you. I miss seeing you all and watching you perform on stage. Every time I perform a show, I give it my all. However, I am now unable to grant you that due to my health. I have no choice but to focus on my health now if I want to get back to you. And I believe I’m making progress toward rehabilitation. My attention is on this. And I’m exerting every effort to become better.”

“I want to express my gratitude for your kind words of support and encouragement on my social media. I greatly value this. Be well and take good care of yourself. I cherish you all so much.”
