Gary Sinise announced the death of his son Mac Sinise : he was only 33 years old. The boy had been fighting for five years against a very rare form of tumor, Chordoma. He died on January 5 but the news was given by the CSI: NY actor only yesterday: “The week the album went to press, Mac lost his battle with cancer. He died on January 5, 2024 at 3:25 in the afternoon, and was buried on January 23.”

Gary Sinise's statement

Gary Sinise announced in the statement that “like any family facing such a loss, we are heartbroken and are trying to handle the situation as best we can. I am so blessed, fortunate and proud to be his father.” The diagnosis of Chordoma arrived in August 2018 and the actor announced his son's illness thus: “In 70% of cases the initial tumor can be removed and is cured. But in 30% of cases, perhaps 90 people every year , the cancer returns” . Mac Sinise had undergone two spinal operations, the disease then returned in 2019 and he therefore underwent a new operation in 2019 . Father's memory:

Mac loved movies. We always told him that he reminded us of the soldier at the end of the extraordinary film 1917, running across the battlefield, bombs exploding around him, knocking him to the ground one after another, yet he keeps getting up, refusing to stop and continue running forward.

What is Chordoma, the rare form of sarcoma that affected Gary Sinise's son

According to information collected by the Tumor Institute, chordomas are particular forms of sarcoma and have aspects common to epithelial tumors, which typically arise either in the sacrum or in the skull base, i.e. at the two ends of the spinal column. They are very rare diseases that have a few dozen new cases per year in Italy. They appear on average around the age of 60, but can also arise on the base of the skull among young people and children. Although not very aggressive, the disease can metastasize to the lungs, skeleton and liver.
