Cause of Death Revealed for Fleetwood Mac’s Christine McVie

Fleetwood Mac’s Christine McVie died of a massive stroke after being diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer, according to reports.

The 79-year-old songwriter, singer, and keyboardist, died at Charing Cross Hospital in London, England last November 13.

McVie was diagnosed with “metastatic malignancy of unknown primary origin,” which means that the cancer had spread to other parts of her body.

The diagnosis was revealed in a copy of McVie’s death certificate which was reportedly obtained by The Blast.

It stated that McVie suffered an ischaemic stroke leading to her death, according to the publication.

A large atrial thrombus and atrial fibrillation were also listed.

Cancer was noted as the secondary cause of her passing.

As Slay News reported at the time, the music legend’s family broke the news of her death on McVie’s Instagram account, writing that she died after a “short illness.”

“There are no words to describe our sadness at the passing of Christine McVie,” Fleetwood Mac also confirmed in a tweet.

“She was truly one-of-a-kind, special, and talented beyond measure,” it read.

“She was the best musician anyone could have in their band and the best friend anyone could have in their life.

“We were so lucky to have a life with her.

“Individually and together, we cherished Christine deeply and are thankful for the amazing memories we have.
