Gage Garmo, 17, who suffered from a rare bone cancer called Osteosarcoma, died not long after the "Rap God" rapper visited him at his Michigan home and spent some time with him Sunday, according to TMZ.
The site reported that the two spent about an hour together, "talking and hanging out" and that Gage was in good spirits that day afterwards. The meeting came about after Gage was told he had only one week to live and his family started the hashtag #GetGageGarmoToMeetEminem.
According to a Go Fund Me page Gage's classmates started for him, he was diagnosed with bone cancer during his freshman year at Rochester High School. Although Gage underwent multiple surgeries and chemo therapy, he still managed to join the school's varsity football team his senior year. Unfortunately, the cancer later spread to his lungs and progressed "at an uncontrollable rate."
Right before his passing, Gage's family and friends rallied for him at a candlelight vigil on the high school's football field. He died Monday evening, according to My Fox Detroit.
Gage would have turned 18 Friday.
