During the premiere of the forthcoming documentary, I Am: Celine Dion, the Canadian music superstar announced that the Celine Dion Foundation has pledged $2 million to support research in the ongoing fight against Autoimmune Neurology. That significant donation will also establish the Celine Dion Foundation Endowed Chair in Autoimmune Neurology. In 2022, Dion was diagnosed with the rare autoimmune and neurological disorder Stiff-Person Syndrome.

A statement on Dion’s donation reads, “This significant gift will provide financial support for students, research expenditures, participation in conferences, curriculum development and other initiatives prioritized by Piquet, and will bolster the specialist’s focus on translational studies.” I Am: Céline Dion, which is directed by Irene Taylor, will be available for streaming from June 25 on Prime Video.
