You might be intimidated by Eminem while listening to his rap lyrics, but the popular artist has a softer side, too. Eminem recently visited a terminally ill 17-year-old fan, granting him his last wish of meeting the real Slim Shady. Megafan Gage Garmo spent his high school career fighting a rare bone cancer known as osteosarcoma and was recently given just one week to live by his doctors. Friends, family, and Gage's community began to share his story with the world, including Gage's idol, Eminem. They took to social media, sharing images of Gage with the hashtags #GarmoStrong and #GetGageToMeetEminem to help fulfil the high school senior's final wish. Sadly, Gage passed away on Monday night after meeting with Eminem on Sunday. Gage would have celebrated his 18th birthday this Friday.
