A few months after Celine Dion’s husband and brother succumbed to cancer, her brother-in-law is diagnosed.
Many of us have known of someone that had cancer, if not perhaps had a family member or loved one, that was diagnosed with one form of it or another. Personally, I have had quite a few friends that have succumbed to the insidious and horrendous disease and others, that thankfully, have been victorious in their fight! Glory be to God!

Unfortunately, Celine Dion’s husband, René Angélil and her brother, succumbed to cancer, earlier this year. They died within two days of one another. Now, she has the devastating news that her brother-in-law, Guy Poirier, is also suffering from this tragic disease. His wife, is Dion’s sister, Liette. Unfortunately, the cancer has spread to his brain, bones and lungs.
Dion’s father, also passed away of bone cancer in 2003, and her brother-in-law is being treated at the Maison Adhemar-Dion, which was named after her dad.
“My brother-in-law is at the Maison Adhemar-Dion and he is still conscious,” Dion’s sister, Claudette, told Echos Vedettes magazine. “My sister (Liette) is with him and she is very strong. People of the Maison are angels and they are taking very good care of our brother-in-law.”
Dion remains focused on her career, despite her heartaches. She is recording new music, touring abroad and continues to perform at her Las Vegas show.
“I feel fulfilled because I was with the best man,” she shared with the Montreal Gazette. “He gave me so much knowledge. And he gave me three magnificent children and I look at them and I see him every day.”
We pray that God gives her and her family strength, that can only come from Him, and that He makes Guy Poirier, whole!
