A Lehigh Valley teenager who was profiled on 69 News has lost his battle with leukemia.

Angel Mojica's mother said her son earned his wings early Saturday morning. He had been battling the disease for six years.

69 News followed Angel as he searched to find a bone marrow donor in 2011.

A celebration of life will be held in his honor this Friday from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Connel Funeral Home in Bethlehem. A mass will follow Sunday morning at Holy Infancy Church.
