Dion's husband, Rene Angelil, had a cancerous tumor removed in December, and she said in a statement Wednesday that the struggle with the disease has taken a toll on her family.

Show organizers say the singer also hasn't recovered from an illness that has inflamed her throat muscles and prevented performances in Las Vegas since July 29.

Fans who bought tickets for future shows are eligible for refunds.
