Down Syndrome in Arts & Media I came across this photo today of Cory Monteith with our dear DSiAM client Robin Trocki. Cory was such a dear man, so kind to our clients, he will be missed. Robin’s Alzheimer’s is taking over more and more of her. She wouldn’t even know Cory now. She hasn’t known me for the last couple of months. So many wonderful people come in and out of our lives. We have to really enjoy their presence while we can!
"I don’t want kids to think it’s okay to drop out of school and get high, and they’ll be famous actors, too," Cory Monteith once said about being a troubled role model who first entered rehab more than 10 years ago at age 19. In 2013, the adored Glee star with the swoon-worthy voice and boyish good looks again sought treatment for substance abuse. Just months later, on July 13, Monteith was found dead at 31 in a Vancouver hotel room. "Have no words," Monteith’s costar Dot-Marie Jones Tweeted. "My heart is broken."
