Glee star, Cory Monteith did everything possible to make a sick fan’s dream come true. The tragic star Montieth took time out of his daily life to help the youngster, who was not able to take him up on his invitation in joining him one the set of Glee in Los Angeles.
The Canadian star’s close friend, Brook Lander Shurtz, explains that Monteith had a great big heart and also shown selfless acts of kindness, he is hoping this is what Montieth will be remembered for. He says,
“The most important thing in this tragic time that I want people to understand and realise is Cory the person. And to me Cory the person was a kind, selfless, genuine person that gave.”
Recalling one exchange with a cancer-stricken devotee, Shurtz tells Eonline.com,
“(There was) this little girl that contacted him from Connecticut, and she was terminally ill. And all she wanted to do was be a part of the Glee set.”
Monteith had given an offer to the child to fly him to Hollywood for a special trip so she could meet all of the show’s cast and crew, except her illness kept her from going so instead her visited her. Shurtz adds,
“He went a step further, and he actually reached out to her and made arrangements when he was on the East Coast to meet up with her and made her day.”
Monteith sadly was found dead in his Vancouver, Canada hotel room on Saturday, July 13, 2013. He was just thirty one years old.
