Cory Monteith will always be remembered as a talented singer and actor, but those close to him don't want us to forget that he was an exceptionally kind and selfless person, too.
The late Glee star's friend Brook Lander Shurtz told E! News exclusively how Cory went above and beyond to help make a terminally ill fan's dream come true.
"The most important thing in this tragic time that I want people to understand and realize is Cory the person. And to me Cory the person was a kind, selfless, genuine person that gave," Brook recalled. "And one example I could touch on is 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. "
