Double Tragedy: Celine Dion’s Brother Dies of Cancer

We are sad to report that Celine Dion’s brother, Daniel, has died from cancer. Daniel passed away early Saturday morning in Montreal. He had been fighting several different types of cancer- throat, tongue, and brain cancer. Daniel was one of Celine’s 13 siblings.

Daniel’s death only comes two days after the passing of Celine’s husband, René Angélil. He passed away on Thursday from throat cancer. Celine recently revealed that her husband’s funeral will be held next Friday at Montreal’s Notre Dame Basilica. Celine and Rene got married there in 1994.

Our thoughts are with Celine and her whole family during this difficult time.
