I can’t say enough about Eminem going out and making someone’s final wish come true. Gage Garmo wanted to meet his idol…and after a social media campaign out there, he did!
Sunday, Eminem visited the terminally ill Gage. He passed away on Monday #RIP

The terminally ill fan that Eminem visited over the weekend passed away less than 24 hours after he spent time with the rapper. TMZ reports that 17-year-old Gage Garmo, who was battling a rare type of bone cancer, died on Monday afternoon. Garmo’s wish to meet Eminem was granted on Sunday after a social media campaign caught the attention of the Michigan-Based charity The Rainbow Connection. A candlelight vigil was held in Garmo’s memory at Rochester High School’s football field in Michigan on Monday night.
