Eminem became a hero this week when he granted a terminally ill fan one final wish before he passed away.
17-year-old Gage Garmo was recently given a week to live after a battle with a rare form of bone cancer called Osteoarcoma.
His one dying wish was to meet his idol rapper Eminem. So his family and friends kicked off a social media campaign using the hashtag #GetGageGarmoToMeetEminem.
Word got to the Detroit MC and he was so moved that he granted Garmo his final wish. Coincidentally, Gage lived just 20 minutes from where Eminem live in Michigan.
The rapper visited him at his home and spend some time with his family.
Metro Detroit, Gage Garmo got his dream! Thank you so much to everyone who helped this amazing man meet Eminem! #GetGageGarmoToMeetEminem

TMZ reported that Eminem arrived at around 5 p.m. on Sunday and spent an hour with his dying fan and his family.
Eminem close friend rapper Royce Da 5’9″ posted a photo on Instagram thanking fans for making it happen.
Gage Garmo reportedly died on Monday the day after Eminem visited him at his home.
