Ever since singing legend Celine Dion cancelled all her shows and tours scheduled for 2023 due to her rare neurological disorder, the pop icon has remained quiet about her path to recovery.

Now, Celine’s older sister, Claudette Dion, has shared an emotional update on her sister’s behalf.

Appearing on the Quebec TV show Bonsoir Bonsoir, the 74-year-old, revealed that her sister is in a “determined state of mind ” to overcome her disorder and is “working hard” to manage her Stiff Person Syndrome (SPS) symptoms.

“We’re all crossing our fingers, and I’m glad people are concerned,” Claudette said on the show.

“She is working hard, and we are confident that we will succeed. It can’t be a story like this.”

Claudette then shared an emotional conversation she had with Celine, where she told her sister “this can’t be possible. Heaven made a mistake.” Celine reportedly replied: “You are going to make me cry.”

Public concerns regarding Dion’s health started back in January 2022 when the My Heart Will Go On singer cancelled the North American leg of her Courage World Tour because of “severe and persistent muscle spasms.”
