Back in March, the signs of Cory Monteith's heroin relapse reportedly became very clear to the cast and crew of Glee.
They knew he needed help facing his demons, so they grouped together for a caring intervention — an intervention they hoped would be the first step to fighting Cory's battle for good.
One source close to the situation reveals how he reacted:
"It wasn't met with resistance. He was always so grateful and aware of how fortunate he was. The decision was to best help our friend. The needs of the show fell second to his well-being."
And as you know, the intervention worked as Cory would soon enter a 30-day stint at rehab. Unfortunately, the help he received wasn't enough to assist his on-going struggle. One of the kindest actors in Hollywood died last weekend, due to a lethal combination of alcohol and heroin.
We're still in shock, and we feel like we'll always be in mourning. We love and miss you, Cory. You were always such a bright, shining ray of strength, and you shall continue to be that for everyone who ever learns of your beautiful efforts to make a positive impact.
