Celine Dion Fights Back Tears as She Offers Update on Stiff Person Syndrome Battle: “If I Can’t Talk, I’ll Crawl”

In her forthcoming documentary, “I Am: Celine Dion,” legendary singer Celine Dion can be seen fighting back tears as she discusses her devastating diagnosis of Stiff Person Syndrome (SPS). According to Radar Online, Dion openly shares the emotional toll her illness has taken, particularly how much she misses performing for her countless fans.

Since her health issues became public, Dion has largely remained out of the media spotlight, prompting serious concerns about her ability to return to performing. Despite making a few sporadic appearances earlier this year, including presenting an award at the 2024 Grammys, her return to the stage remains uncertain. She had to cancel all her world tour dates for 2023 and 2024, underscoring the severity of her condition.

In a newly released trailer for her documentary, Dion is seen on the verge of 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, despite all the challenges and hardships, the 56-year-old remains resolute in her determination to return to her passion. In a powerful declaration, the five-time Grammy winner vowed, “I won’t stop. If I can’t run, I’ll walk. If I can’t walk, I’ll crawl. And I won’t stop. I’ve seen my life, and I love every piece of it. It’s not hard to do a show, you know. It’s hard to cancel a show.”

Earlier this year, on March 15, Dion provided an update to mark SPS Awareness Day. “Today the world recognizes International SPS Awareness Day,” she posted on social media. “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 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 who have been affected by SPS. I want you to know you can do it! We can do it!”
