Dear Joseph,
We join so many others in our sadness about the tragic, sudden death of “Glee” star Cory Monteith due to an overdose of heroin and alcohol

Something we admired in Cory over the years was his fearless approach to speaking openly and honestly about his substance use and attempts to change his life course through treatment. By sharing his story with the world, he hoped that his experience could be an example for other young people. In many ways, he did what you, our Hope Share community, do every day. He opened up and broke his silence so that others could find strength and comfort, knowing that they are not alone in their recovery.

Cory’s struggle and death don’t make him a hypocrite. It makes him human. And his life and death can still be an example for families, even after his passing.

Thank you for your continued commitment to empowering and comforting each other on The Hope Share. We know you join us in remembering Cory. We believe he changed lives, and we believe you are, too.
