BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - LSU's beloved swim team manager, Kayne Finley, passed away Friday morning, according to a Facebook post made by the family.
According to the Cannonballs for Kayne Facebook page, Finley died at 8:20 a.m. Friday after a long bout with diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG), a type of cancer-related tumors found at the base of the brain.
"Kayne's legacy will live on as he fulfilled his purpose in furthering the Great Commission and in making a difference by raising awareness for DIPG brain cancer," the post read.
Finley, a swimmer and volleyball player in high school, was diagnosed with the rare, inoperable tumors nearly one year ago.
According to the post, service arrangements will be announced soon.
