Top artist Celine Dion in an emotional video posted to Instagram on Thursday revealed that she is battling Stiff Person Syndrome, a rare and incurable neurological disease.
The 54-year-old Singer’s spring 2023 shows have been rescheduled to 2024 and eight of her summer 2023 shows have been canceled.
In April, Dion shared an emotional message with her fans and followers announcing that she would have to cancel and postpone some of the dates of her tour until 2023. However, she was optimistic about getting back on the road as soon as possible.
According to the Mayo Clinic, Stiff Person Syndrome is “a rare disorder of motor function characterized by involuntary stiffness of axial muscles and superimposed painful muscle spasms, which are often induced by startle or emotional stimuli.”
Dion’s latest news regarding her health comes on the 25th anniversary of her hit song, “My Heart Will Go On.”
