Celine Dion has decided to put family first and focus on the health of both herself and her husband by canceling all upcoming Las Vegas shows as well as her fall Asia tour.

"I want to devote every ounce of my strength and energy to my husband's healing, and to do so, it's important for me to dedicate this time to him and to our children," the Canadian superstar singer said in a statement Wednesday, according to Reuters.

Dion's husband, Rene Angelil, had surgery in December to remove a cancerous tumor, and Dion has been fighting an illness that has caused inflammation in her throat muscles. She has not been able to perform her scheduled Las Vegas shows at Caesars Palace since July 29.

The Canadian-born singer said it has been very difficult and stressful for the couple as they try to fight illness and juggle their show business schedule with raising three young children.

"I also want to apologize to all my fans everywhere, for inconveniencing them, and I thank them so much for their love and support," she said.
