Mike found out in 2014 that he had a rare form of cancer. He has had 2 surgeries to remove as much of the cancer as possible and is on low-dose chemotherapy to try to keep it in check. There is no cure for this type of cancer. Mike and his wife Laurie live in Sibley and have 4 children and 2 grandchildren.
