Gage Garmo, a 17-year-old high school student, was battling with a rare and aggressive form of bone cancer called Osteosarcoma. Doctors gave the teen one more week to live, so his friends, family and other Shady fans went to work on making Garmo's biggest wish come true: Meeting Eminem.
They spread word using the hashtag #GetGageGarmoToMeetEminem, and it worked!
On Monday, Royce da 5’9″ confirmed that Eminem did meet with Garmo (reportedly on Sunday), sharing a photo of the teen on Instagram and telling fans, “Mission accomplished. God bless this beautiful kid and thank you guys for all your hard work.”
A day later, My Fox Detroit confirmed that Garmo died on Monday night, just four days shy of his 18th birthday.
R.I.P. Gage Garmo.
