Eminem may be a brute on his rhymes, but the real “Slim Shady” is anything but! The rapper recently granted a teenage fan’s dying wish with a surprise visit to the boy’s home, just one day before he passed away.
Eminem, 42, made one of his biggest fans’ wish come true. The rapper showed his soft side when visiting a terminally ill teen who wanted nothing more than to meet the rapper before he passed. A very sweet gesture, made even grander since he just made it in time before the poor boy passed.
Eminem Visits Terminally Ill Teenage Fan
Eminem is not all scathing rhymes and controversial lyrics. When it comes to his fans, he definitely has a soft spot.
The Detroit-born rapper recently made one of his young fan’s final wishes come true, paying an unexpected visit to the terminally ill teenager’s home just one day before the boy passed away.
Gage Garmo, 17, was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer, and told that he only had about one week left to live.
As soon as his family and he found out about his condition, Gage’s friends and family sprang into action — campaigning for his favorite rapper to visit the teen in his final days. They started the hashtag #GetGageGarmoToMeetEminem and successfully caught Eminem’s attention!
Looking to avoid a media spectacle, the rapper arrived quietly to Gage’s home on Sunday, sitting and speaking with the stunned teenager for over an hour. How nice!
Eminem: Fan Dies Just One Day After Rapper’s Visit
Unfortunately, Gage lost his battle with Osteosarcoma on Monday afternoon — just one day after Eminem surprised him at his home.
Gage’s family reports that Eminem’s visit really lifted the boy’s spirits in his last day of life.
Last night, members of Gage’s community held a candlelight vigil for the young boy at his local high school, where he served as a manager for the football team.
What do you think HollywoodLifers? Isn’t it great what he did for this young fan?
