A long battle with cancer didn't stop Mac Sinise as he poured all of his energy into what he loved most: music and faith.

Catholic actor Gary Sinise took to social media this week to mourn the loss of his son earlier this year following a five-and-a-half-year battle with Chordoma, a rare spinal cancer.

McCanna Anthony Sinise was diagnosed in 2018 at the same time Sinise’s wife, Moira, was diagnosed with breast cancer. Writing in his post, Sinise said, “The summer of 2018 was a particularly challenging time for our family.”

Sinise worked indefatigably, researching his son’s rare diagnosis and grappling with this new world of cancer while trying to care for his wife and son. “Two cancer patients, mother and son, within two months of each other?” he wrote, calling it a “real punch in the gut.”

Sinise also clung to his Catholic faith. The actor converted in 2010 and has spoken openly about it to EWTN’s Raymond Arroyo, as well as his ongoing commitment to helping the military and veterans.
