During the Montreal Canadiens game in Las Vegas, Celine Dion made a rare public appearance despite her battle with Moersch-Woltman syndrome, also known as stiff-person syndrome. The superstar from Quebec went to the game on Monday, October 30, along with her three boys, René-Charles, 22, and the twins, Nelson and Eddy, 13, and shared a number of pictures on her Instagram. She captioned the photo, saying, “My boys and I had such a fun time visiting with the Montreal Canadiens after their hockey game with Vegas Golden Knights in Las Vegas on Monday night.” What a fantastic game, they played so brilliantly! We appreciate you guys meeting up with us after the game! That was something we will all remember. Enjoy a wonderful season!
Along with four Canadiens players—center Nick Suzuki, right winger Cole Caufield, center Alex Newhook, and defender Arber Xhekaj—Dion is pictured with her sons in the carousel of images. Even though the Canadiens were defeated by the Golden Knights in the game, nobody seemed to be depressed about it. When Dion first disclosed her diagnosis of the uncommon neurological disorder in December of last year, she was candid about her struggles with it. She used social media to inform followers about her condition at the time, which started with vocal problems and muscle spasms around 2021.
In the video from December 5, she stated, “I’ve been diagnosed with a very rare neurological condition called Stiff Person Syndrome, which affects something like one in a million people.” We now know that this is the source of all of my spasms, even though we’re still learning a lot about this uncommon ailment. Regretfully, these spasms interfere with every part of my everyday existence; they can occasionally make it difficult for me to walk and prevent me from using my vocal cords to sing as I usually do. Dion was had to postpone her 2021 Las Vegas residency and her Courage Tour due to her health. She was able to identify her ailment by December 2022 and started looking for specialist care. Dion’s sister, Claudette, provided followers with an update on her health as of August.
“We don’t know a lot about this illness,” Claudette said to Hello Magazine. “Spasms are present. They are beyond your power to manage. We are powerless to help her or take away her suffering. However, Claudette said of her younger sister, “She’s making every effort to heal.” She is a powerful lady.
