It’s more heartbreak for Celine Dion. Less than a day after her husband died from cancer, the Canadian megastar’s big brother Daniel Dion is fighting for his life with just “hours left to live,”.

The 59-year-old is reportedly battling brain, throat and tongue cancer in their native Montreal, their sister Claudette Dion said. His condition is apparently so severe that the family doubts he will survive another week. More After the cut…

Dion, 47, is already in the throes of grief, as her husband, 73-year-old Rene Angelil, passed away Thursday following his own fight with throat cancer.

Angelil, who propelled the “My Heart Will Go On” singer to fame, “passed away this morning at his home in Las Vegas after a long and courageous battle against cancer,” a rep told People Magazine in a statement. 

He was originally diagnosed with throat cancer in 1999, and had staved off the disease two times before.
