Spirit Lives Forever: The story of how Mo Gaba captured the hearts of his community


Mossila Kingsley Gaba, affectionately known as Mo, was born on Jan. 26, 2006, in Baltimore, Maryland. He developed a love for Baltimore sports, and that, combined with his magnetic personality, was how many across the city were first introduced to him.

Before he could celebrate his first birthday, Mo Gaba was forced to overcome serious obstacles. He was diagnosed with bilateral retinoblastoma, a malignant tumor of the retina. At just 9 months old Mo lost his eyesight and would battle cancer multiple times throughout his childhood. Despite the challenges he faced, Mo’s resilient spirit left a profound impact on his community.
