Unfortunately, Corey Haim was not honored with the Cineplex Legends Award this year. Disappointed doesn’t even begin to cover how we are feeling right now.
“There’s always next year…”
Yeah, we know, thanks.
“It’s been three long years since we first came across this award. Three years of fighting, and clawing, but clearly, it hasn’t been good enough. I am not going to lie to you all, I feel very defeated right now. But if you ask me what keeps me going, two things.
First, my daughter, Cadence. I want her to know her mother to be someone that never gave up when times got hard, and while they are definitely difficult right now, my passion is still as strong as ever. My desire to see this mission through CANNOT be any stronger, I promise you.
Secondly, my promise to Corey Haim. The dedication I made six years ago when first starting this effort, and the one I made to him this past March in my card to him. “You’re going to make it, kid, the night can only last so long.”
Well, damn it, he IS going to make it! Chin up, Haim Army! This is for Corey, never give up, that’s all I can say. Corey would have wanted his beloved fans to see this through for him, until we see the light, until Corey is honored the way he should be. Let’s get it done! I love every single one of you, and I couldn’t feel more proud to have you all by my side. God Bless the Haim Army!”
