Actor Corey Haim’s Mom Speaks Out

Corey Haim’s mother has broken her silence about the actor’s death. Appearing on Good Morning America Wednesday, Judy Haim revealed her late son died in her arms and urged fans not to forget the fallen star. Judy said she moved in with Corey after she was diagnosed with cancer, and was a loyal son, taking her to doctor’s visits. “It’s been very difficult, to say the least,” she said. Judy said the night before Corey passed away, they played Frisbee together. She says they played for about 30 seconds when Corey said he wasn’t feeling well. Judy said the next day, Corey came down with a bad fever and she cared for him, keeping tabs on his fever and rubbing Vick’s vapor rub on his back and arms.
“It wasn’t anything at all that I was [seriously] worried about,” Judy said, noting Corey was her “best friend in the whole wide world. He was very sick that day, he died in my arms. With all the struggles, I want to honor his memory. I just want everyone to remember him for the wonderful human being that he was, and a great actor.” Corey was pronounced dead at the age of 38 on March 10 at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Burbank, California, due to pulmonary congestion.
