A softer side to Eminem


The picture above is of 17 year old Gage Garmo of Michigan who was dying of bone cancer. Gage's dying wish was to meet his idol, Eminem which led to the hastag creation #GetGageGarmoToMeetEminem, a tag that was pushed aroud the twittersphere by friends and family until it gathered enough fairy dust to grab Eminem's attention, who then made an appearance at their the boys family home.

The Detroit Free press had this to say on the story:

Gage sat up with a grin on his face,” said Rainbow Connection’s Ingrid Todt, on hand as Eminem arrived at the Garmo home. “His family hadn’t seen their son do that in such a long time.”… The visit was ultimately arranged by Rainbow Connection, which works to grant wishes to Michigan children with life-threatening illnesses… Looking on were Gage’s mom, dad and younger sister in a moment that was “very special and very quiet at the same time,” said Todt, Rainbow Connection’s wish director. “It was one of the most amazing things I’ve ever seen,” she said. “The stars aligned, and Gage’s wish came true.”
