Celine Dion diagnosed with stiff person syndrome, a neurological disorder

Celine Dion has canceled the remaining dates of her Courage World Tour while she receives treatment for stiff person syndrome, a rare neurological disorder.

“I’m so sorry to disappoint you all once again. I’m working very hard to rebuild my strength, but touring can be very difficult even when you’re at 100%,” the Canadian singer wrote in an Instagram announcement.

Dion announced in December that he had been diagnosed with an incurable neurological condition that causes muscle stiffness and spasms. The medical condition made it harder for her to walk and sing, she said at the time.

“We are hopeful that one day soon, Celine will be able to come to all these cities in Europe to perform in front of her amazing fans, but now is simply not the time,” Dion said in a statement.
