Mike VI begins cancer treatment Sunday morning

Despite only being given up to two years to live, LSU’s live tiger mascot Mike VI is going to fight until he can’t fight anymore. The Tigers have put him in treatment for his rare form of cancer and that began Sunday morning.

On Saturday, Mike VI was put under anesthesia and transported to Mary Bird Perkins – Our Lady of the Lake Cancer Center for his cancer treatment. The school posted an update to the tiger’s Facebook page Saturday evening.

The entire Tiger family is praying for Mike VI and hope he makes a miraculous recovery and is at least able to attend one game throughout the 2016 season.

It is going to be a long and tough battle, but it certainly seems like he is strong enough to fight back.
