Claudette Dion, 74, has just given Celine Dion‘s fans an update on her younger sister’s battle with Stiff Person Syndrome, the rare neurological disorder which the 55-year-old “That’s The Way It Is” singer told fans she had been diagnosed with back in December 2022.

Claudette told Le Journal de Montreal that their sister Linda, 64, has now moved into the singer’s Las Vegas mansion – where she lives with her three sons René-Charles, 22, and 11-year-old twins Nelson and Eddy – in order to help care for her.

And although she heartbreakingly confessed that her sister is currently struggling to find any medications that are working for her, Claudette said that the “Power of Love” singer is still persevering with her recovery and has not lost hope.

Claudette Dion Updates Celine Dion’s Fans, Says ‘Having Hope Is Important’

“We can’t find any medicine that works, but having hope is important,” Claudette confessed. “When I call her and she’s busy, I speak to my sister Linda who lives with her and tells me that she’s working hard.

She’s listening to the top researchers in the field of this rare disease as much as possible,” she added, before going on to say that the Grammy-winner could perhaps be trying to do too much.

“I honestly think that she mostly needs to rest,” Claudette continued. “She always goes above and beyond, she always tries to be the best and top of her game. At one point, your heart and your body are trying to tell you something. It’s important to listen to it.”

Claudette Dion Previously Told Celine Dion’s Fans That The Singer Is ‘Fighting’

According to Journaldesfemmes.fr, Claudette updated Celine’s fans on the Quebec TV show, Bonsoir Bonsoir back in July, and said that her sister is “in a determined state of mind” despite the setbacks from the rare neurological disorder. Stiff Person Syndrome causes uncontrollable muscle spasms that can lead to other medical complications, with Celine previously telling fans it has even affected her ability to sing, as she said she “cannot use my vocal cords to sing the way I am used to.”

At the end of May, the “Because You Loved Me” singer announced that she was forced to cancel all of the remaining dates on her Courage World Tour due to her struggles with the condition. She told fans that she was disappointed to let them down, but they had nothing but support for her in the comments section on Instagram, and said that they just wanted her to focus on her health.

Talking about her sister’s determination to fight the condition, Claudette told Bonsoir Bonsoir host Jean-Philippe Wauthier: “I know she’s working hard.” She went on to say, “We’re all crossing our fingers, and I’m glad people are concerned.” Wauthier chimed in and said, “The whole world is concerned,” to which Claudette replied, “She is working hard, and we are confident that we will succeed. It can’t be a story like this.”

Insider Previously Said Celine Dion Can ‘Barely Move’

An insider told RadarOnline back in May that the musician is having difficulty walking and “experiences periods of intense pain that come out of nowhere.” A source also told the pub that the Canadian superstar “has the best medical team money can buy, but things aren’t looking good.” “Her disease is incurable,” the source added. “And as hard as she’s worked at it with doctors and therapists, she simply isn’t getting better. To be honest, she can barely move.”
