Eminem grants dying fan's wish to meet his rap idol

Rap superstar Eminem made a cancer-stricken fan's dreams come true on Sunday (11Jan15) by quietly paying a visit to the teenager's Michigan home.

Gage Garmo's friends and family launched a social media campaign last week (ends09Jan15) in a bid to score the 17 year old a face-to-face meeting with his hip-hop idol after learning the youngster only has a week to live.


The effort, which made use of the hashtag "#GetGageGarmoToMeetEminem", became a surprise success when the Stan hitmaker himself heard about the campaign - and reached out to Garmo's relatives to organize the visit.


Eminem agreed to stop by Garmo's home in Michigan, just 20 minutes away from his own pad, on Sunday and spent around an hour with the ailing teen, who suffers from Osteosarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer, according to TMZ.com.
