Celine Dion fights back tears as she offers update on Stiff Person Syndrome battle – ‘If I can’t talk, I’ll crawl”

Celine Dion is visibly emotional as she discusses her devastating Stiff Person Syndrome diagnosis in her upcoming documentary, “I Am: Celine Dion.”

According to Radar Online, the legendary singer openly shares the pain her illness has caused, expressing that what she misses most is performing for her dedicated fans.

Dion has largely stayed out of the public eye since her health issues became known, leading to serious doubts about whether she will ever be able to perform again.

Although she made a few rare appearances earlier this year, including presenting an award at the 2024 Grammys, Dion doesn’t seem any closer to returning to the stage.

Her condition forced her to cancel all her world tour dates for 2023 and 2024, underscoring the severity of her Stiff Person Syndrome diagnosis.

In a newly released trailer for her upcoming documentary, Dion is seen fighting back tears as she talks about coping with a life where she can no longer perform as she has for decades.

“I am working hard every day but I have to admit, it’s been a struggle. I miss it so much. The people. I miss them,” she said.

Yet through all the hardships and tribulations, the 56-year-old remains steadfast in her commitment to return to doing what she does best, at any cost.

In a powerful statement, the five-time Grammy winner promised that she “won’t stop”.

“If I can’t run, I’ll walk. If I can’t walk, I’ll crawl,” Dion said. “And I won’t stop. I won’t stop.”

“I’ve seen my life, and I love every piece of it,” she added. “It’s not hard to do a show, you know,” she said. “It’s hard to cancel a show.”

Earlier this year, on March 15, Dion offered an update to mark SPS Awareness Day.

“Today the world recognizes International SPS Awareness Day,” her social media post read.

“As many of you know, in the fall of 2022, I was diagnosed with Stiff Person Syndrome (SPS). Trying to overcome this autoimmune disorder has been one of the hardest experiences of my life, but I remain determined to one day get back onto the stage and to live as normal of a life as possible.

“I am deeply grateful for the love and support from my kids, family, team and all of you!

“I want to send my encouragement and support to all those around the world that have been affected by SPS. I want you to know you can do it! We can do it!”
