For her part, Claudette Dion is hopeful that her younger sister will get back into shape. “I’m crossing my fingers, but I am convinced that they will find something to cure this disease. Since it’s very rare, there weren’t many researchers working on this; but thanks to [Céline Dion]there are more who are looking for a cure”she indicated, before concluding: “I think, in a sense, Céline will help save the lives of many people who suffer from it.“
