Rochester Hills - A terminally ill Detroit-area teenager
who was surprised by a visit from rapper Eminem has died.
Rainbow Connection Executive Director Mary Grace McCarter
said on Tuesday that the parents of 17-year-old Gage Garmo told her that he
died on Monday in their Rochester Hills home.
Gage had a wish fulfilled when Detroit native Eminem
stopped by Sunday evening.
The Detroit Free Press says the pair sat in the family's
living room talking about hip-hop and football.
Gage was diagnosed with bone cancer three years ago, when
he was a freshman at Rochester High School.
Friends and classmates used social media to spread Gage's
wish to meet Eminem, his musical hero, after he learnt last week that he had
just days left to live.
