CLEVELAND, Ohio – 16-year-old St. Edward High School student Michael George has passed away.

The school posted about their loss Sunday.

“Our hearts are aching today as we mourn the loss of our own Mikey George,” they posted on Twitter.

The teen was declared cancer-free in December after a battle with leukemia.

In June, Michael’s mother posted that he was undergoing a bone marrow biopsy. She later confirmed they didn’t receive the news they hoped for.
