Multi-time Grammy Award winner Celine Dion has focused her time and energy on her sons as she navigates her stiff-person syndrome diagnosis.
A source told PEOPLE magazine, “Her main focuses are always her sons and performing. She is the most selfless and considerate person. Céline just loves her boys so much. They are amazing. They give her all the support and love that she needs.”
“They are her light right now,” added the insider.
Dion recently canceled concert dates and the remainder of her tour.
A music source told PEOPLE, “It’s heartbreaking that she has had to cancel touring but she is suffering mobility and other issues from the disease disrupting her daily life. She is doing everything she can while working with doctors because she wants to perform. She has not given up at all. She is hoping to get all of the issues with this disease under control so she can sing again.”
Movieguide® recently reported on Dion’s diagnosis:
The Cleveland Clinic defines SPS as “a rare autoimmune movement disorder that affects the central nervous system (the brain and spinal cord). People with this condition first experience a stiffening of the muscles of their trunk followed, over time, by the development of stiffness and rigidity in the legs and other muscles in the body.”
“While we’re still learning about this rare condition, we now know this is what has been causing all of the spasms I’ve been having,” Dion went on. “Unfortunately these spasms affect every aspect of my daily life, sometimes causing difficulties when I walk and not allowing me to use my vocal cords to sing the way I’m used to.”
She continued, “It hurts me to tell you, today, that this means I won’t be ready to restart my tour in Europe in February. I have a great team of doctors working alongside me to help get better and my precious children, who are supporting me and giving me hope.”
