A cancer-stricken Michigan teenager, who got to meet Eminem as his last wish, has died. Seventeen-year-old Gage Garmo got to meet his idol Sunday night when the Detroit rapper surprised Garmo at his home in Rochester.
On Monday, family members posted online that the teen had passed away. Garmo was diagnosed with bone cancer three years ago and had undergone a series of treatments and surgeries. Last week his health declined and he was given only days to live.
Eminem got word of Gage after the teen's friends and family started the hashtag #GetGageGarmoToMeetEminem. Eminem and Gage hung out for about one hour on Sunday.
On Instagram, Em's Shady Records associate Royce da 5'9" confirmed the meeting with a picture of Gage along with a caption reading "mission accomplished." He also said "God bless this beautiful kid" and thanked everyone for their efforts.
