Celine Dion's older brother Daniel is on his deathbed and only has hours left to live after a fight with cancer ... TMZ has learned.

Daniel, 59, has been fighting brain, tongue and throat cancer in Celine's native Montreal according to his sister, Claudette. He's surrounded by family, including their 89-year-old mother, but it's so bad the family doesn't think he'll make it through another week. 

Rene also died of throat cancer.  

Daniel's health crisis was first reported by Journal de Montreal.
