Nigerians express concern as Celine Dion battles incurable disease

Celine Dion Celine Dion

Canadian singer, Celine Dion, has been diagnosed with an incurable neurological disease.

The 54-year-old singer took to her Instagram page on Thursday, December 8, 2022, to reveal her current health status.

The singer said she is suffering from Stiff Person Syndrome (SPS), which causes her muscles to tense uncontrollably.

According to her, the disease turns people into human statues as it progressively locks the body into rigid positions, ultimately leaving people unable to walk or talk.

While there is no cure for the condition, Celine Dion said she is doing all she can to minimize symptoms and slow down the progression.

The singer added that she has been forced to cancel her European tour.

She captioned the tearful video: “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.”

Reacting to the video, many lovers of the singer, stormed her comment section with prayers.

Here are some:
