This is so sad! Celine Dion broke down in tears when she talked about her husband’s battle with cancer, and after watching her discuss the ordeal in a new interview, you might end up crying, too.
Poor Celine Dion! The 46-year-old has been so strong in taking care of her husband, René Angélil, 73, since his health declined due to throat cancer last year. The incomparable diva has worked hard to help her family during this very trying time, but it certainly has taken its toll. In an interview, she openly discussed the burden of taking care of the love of her life, even having to feed him through a tube.
Celine Dion & Husband’s Cancer: She Has To Feed René Angélil Through A Tube
In a heart-wrenching interview with ABC’s Good Morning America, Celine talked how she’s been at the forefront of Rene’s recovery during the past year. While wiping away tears, Celine talked about how Rene’s throat cancer has made it difficult for him to eat.
“He can’t use his mouth. He can’t eat. So I feed him. He has a feeding tube. I have to feed him three times a day,” she said.
Rene was first diagnosed with throat cancer in 1999 but recovered after treatment. A second cancer diagnosis required a tumor to be removed from his throat in Dec.2013, reports Entertainment Tonight.
Our thoughts are with Celine and her family. Cancer is so horrible and we hope for a full recovery for Rene.
