Together, René-Charles, Eddy, Nelson and their aunt, are all helping with her care, rehabilitation work, and recovery. The family is also listening to top researchers in the field as much as they can.

Claudette said that she is concerned about her sister maybe going beyond while reassuring everyone that Céline is making great efforts to heal. In her words, “I honestly think that she needs to rest the most. She always goes above and beyond, she always tries to be the best and at the top of her game.”
