TORONTO, Feb. 28, 2014 /CNW/ - Putting to rest rumours that have been
circulating these past few weeks, Rene Angelil's office confirmed today
that he has been recovering at home in Las Vegas following surgery to
remove a cancerous tumour from his throat on December 23rd. The
procedure was successful and Mr. Angelil was released from hospital a
few days following the surgery.
During his recovery, Mr. Angelil has decided to take a short hiatus from
his normal work schedule, and concentrate on rebuilding his strength
through proper rest and nutrition.
"I don't want René to stress out with work-related issues," said
Celine. "I want him to focus on getting back to 100%. I've been doing
my shows at the Colosseum and everything's under control. At home
we've been spending a lot of quality time with the family. We feel
very fortunate that we've been able to get the best care possible and
we thank God every day for helping us to get through this ordeal."
The Angelil couple does not wish to make any further comments at this
time, and requests that the press respect their wishes.
