This is just so sad.

Gage Garmo, the terminally ill teen whose dream was to meet Eminem, lost his battle with cancer one day after his dream came true.

On Sunday, Eminem visited the 17-year-old in his Michigan home, where they chatted about Gage's two loves: hip-hop and football. Their meeting was arranged via The Rainbow Connection, a charity which grants terminally ill children their wishes.

On Monday, Gage passed away from Osteoarcoma, an aggressive bone cancer.

Rainbow Connection's Ingrid Todt said Gage's spirits were raised when the rapper arrived:

"Gage sat up with a grin on his face. His family hadn't seen their son do that in such a long time."

Before his death, Gage also met with members of the Detroit Lions, his favorite NFL team, including Eric Ebron and Reggie Bush.

Our thanks to Eminem for his act of kindness, and our condolences to Gage's family and friends.
