Celine Dion is probably having the worst week of her life.

Yesterday her husband René Angélil, passed away after losing his battle with cancer. And now we found out that the 47-year-old’s brother Daniel Dion is ALSO dying of cancer.


Celine’s sister, Claudette, told The Journal of Montreal that their sibling is on his deathbed, saying:

“It’s very painful. It’s a matter of days or hours.”

And that he’s suffering from three different types of cancer…

“It looks a lot like René, he had cancer of the throat, tongue and brain. Our family is very experienced.”

Claudette added that their 89-year-old mom, Thérèse, is in Montreal to be with her son:

“We are with Daniel, day and night. He is 59 years old, very young to be the end of life.”

Wow. It is hard to imagine the kind of pain that this family is going through, and especially how Celine feels. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Dions…
