The emotional post
Celine Dion not only opened up about suffering from the disorder but also shared an emotional video post on Instagram in which she highlighted stiff-person syndrome that affects one in a million people.
Here is what the singer captioned her video message, “‼️ Celine Dion reschedules Spring 2023 shows to 2024, and cancels eight of her summer 2023 shows. ‼️ « ’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 to talk about everything that I’ve been going through…It hurts me to tell you that I won’t be ready to restart my tour in Europe in February.” – Céline.”

Celine further continues in the video, “While we’re still learning about this rare condition, we now know this is what’s been causing all of the spasms that I’ve been having.” She added, “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.”
Dion further mentioned that she has a great team of medical professionals, including her children’s support. She added, “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,” the Canadian singer stated in the same message.
A teary-eyed Celine said, “I miss seeing all of you, being on the stage, performing for you. I always give 100% when I do my shows, but my condition is not allowing me to give you that right now.”
