Poor Celine Dion has been hit with another personal tragedy, as her family struggles to deal with a third cancer battle, so soon after the tragic deaths of her husband Rene Angelil and brother Daniel Dion.
Seemingly giving strength to the notion that bad things come in threes, Celine is said to be heartbroken by the news that her beloved sister Liette's husband Guy Poirier is now in a care home, after cancer spread to his lung, brain and bones.
Sister Claudette told Echos Vedettes magazine: 'My step-brother is at the Maison Adhemar-Dion and he is still conscious.
'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 step-brother'.
Maison Adhemar-Dion is a Quebec palliative care unit named after Celine’s father Adhemar.
