It seems that tragic news keep on emerging when it comes to famous singer Celine Dion. After her husband Rene Angelil passed away this week following a long cancer battle, it has now been reported that the singer’s brother has been hospitalized for a similar condition.
The sad news was revealed by her sister, Claudette Dion, who claimed that Daniel Dion has been hospitalized with throat, tongue and brain cancer. According to Claudette, Daniel might have only a few days to live. Daniel is currently under medical treatment in Montreal. This is an amazingly difficult moment for the entire Dion family.
Claudette actually claimed that Daniel’s illness is somewhat similar with the disease experienced by Rene. The sad news was also confirmed by a spokesperson for the Dion family, who revealed that Daniel is now surrounded by family and friends. Celine is currently preparing for the funeral of her husband, Rene, so it remains unclear if she is able to be there for her brother. The singer asked for privacy during these very difficult moments.
However, Celine revealed that she will respect her husband’s wish when it comes to the funeral, which will be taking place in Montreal. “According to his final wishes, his Funeral will be held at Notre-Dame Basilica in Montreal, where 21 years ago, he chose to marry the one who will remain as the great love of his life, the artist for which he had the most respect, the woman who gave him light and happiness until his very last breath,” the talented singer revealed in an official Facebook post.
