BALTIMORE — Beloved Baltimore superfan Mo Gaba has passed away at the age of 14, after battling cancer four times.

When he was just nine-months-old, he lost his eyesight to a malignant tumor.

Across the state people are sending their condolences to his family and share their memories of Mo.

"Mo just meant everything to Baltimore. The way he was fighting the way he always had that smile on his face and the way he would always look on the positive side of things was really motivating, just makes everybody want to be a better person."

Following his funeral, Jimmy’s Seafood will close to treat his loved ones to a wake in his honor.

On Tuesday, Mo was named to the Baltimore Orioles Hall of Fame. He also became an honorary Baltimore Police Lieutenant earlier this month.

Last year he became the first person to announce a NFL draft pick using braille.
