Daniel Dion is reportedly battling three different types of cancer.

The 59-year-old is reportedly battling brain, throat and tongue cancer in their native Montreal, their sister Claudette Dion told the gossip site.

His condition is apparently so severe that the family doubts he will survive another week.

Dion, 47, is already in the throes of grief after 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 Thursday.

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

A rep for Dion has not yet replied to the Daily News’ request for comment.
