Celine Dion’s family found out her brother only has hours left to live just a day after her husband died.

Daniel Dion, 47, has been fighting brain, tongue and throat cancer. During an interview Friday, Claudette Dion said it was “a matter of days or hours.”

“It’s very painful,” she said. “It’s a matter of days or hours. It looks a lot like René, he had cancer of the throat, tongue and brain.”

“Our family is very experienced,” she added.

Dion’s husband, René Angélil was diagnosed with throat cancer in 1998 and died Thursday at the age of 73. (RELATED: Celine Dion’s Husband Dies)
