Eminem paid a surprise visit to a fan living 20 minutes away from his residence

A Twitter campaign fulfilled Eminem's terminally ill fan's last wish

Rapper Eminem showed his gentle side by granting a terminally ill fan's last wish of meeting him personally.

The Not Afraid hitmaker, who has a reputation of being a ruthless, offensive and remorseless rap star, shocked his fan when he walked into his family's living room to hang out for the next hour, reported TMZ.

Eminem met his 17-year-old terminally illy fan Gage Garmo, who is suffering from Osteosarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer.

The one-to-one meeting came about after Garmo's close friends and family members started a Twitter campaign with the hashtag #GetGageGarmoToMeetEminem.

Their efforts were a success as the 42-year-old rapper arranged a visit to Garmo's Michigan home, which is around 20 minutes away from Eminem's residence.
