Tusk IV, the live mascot of the University of Arkansas Razorbacks, sent his well-wishes to LSU's Mike VI just days after his cancer diagnosis. The yellow and purple bouquet came with the card that read as follows:

Get well soon! We're pulling for you to defeat this foe just like you have all athletic opponents in the past 9 years as the Tigers live mascot. Take care. See you soon. -Tusk IV

Support has poured in from around the world as Mike VI begins his cancer battle.

Mike was diagnosed after veterinary care takers noticed some swelling on his face which turned out to be a cancerous tumor. The tumor is inoperable, but radiation treatments should prolong his life.


From all of us, GET WELL SOON Mike and GEAUX TIGERS!
