“A message of immense hope”: a neurologist believes in a potential return of Celine Dion

A neurologist begins to believe that Céline Dion’s return to the stage is possible thanks to her determination, which could thus offer a message of hope to patients suffering from the same illness.

“When this diagnosis was announced, I was very doubtful and the more things progress, the more we see his determination, the more we start to believe it. Really, I hope, it would be a demonstration of strength and will that would be absolutely phenomenal,” said Dr. Julien J. Cavanagh, assistant professor of neurology at Emory University Hospital.

However, the neurologist explains that access to care from which the singer certainly benefits could play an important role, if a return becomes possible.

“It must also be admitted that [elle est] in conditions of access to care with undoubtedly a team who is close to her, in conditions to which most patients cannot access, this is undoubtedly what will play a role,” he explained. , on the show “Le Bilan”.

Dr Cavanagh, who is also an admirer of Céline, still sees a reason to be optimistic: “It would be a message of immense hope for all patients who have this disease and who have their lives greatly impacted.”

The documentary, which will be released on Prime on June 25, traces the singer’s fight and highlights the illness that has kept her away from the stage for several years: stiff person syndrome.

“It is a disease of the central nervous system where, at the brain level, the instructions allowing the muscles to relax no longer come through. […] If the muscles that relax can no longer relax, we become completely stiff,” explained the specialist.
