Reports: Corey Haim spent last days supporting mother with breast cancer

Since 80's teen idol Corey Haim passed away earlier this week, fans have been trying to piece together the last days of the 38-year-old's life. Recent reports have stated that the late actor spent the majority of his final days living with and caring for his mother, who is battling breast cancer.

Jensen LeFlore, Haim's director in the movie Decisions, which is scheduled to be released later this year, said that he recently spoke to the actor about his mother's fight against the disease, reports.

"It was the only time I really heard him down," LeFlore told the news source. "His mom was all Corey had. He was focused on taking care of his mom. They were living together and he wanted to take care of her," he added.

Haim's reportedly cared for his mother as she underwent chemotherapy and radiation.

According to his agent, Mark Heaslip, the actor would call his mother frequently, stay with her in between acting jobs and attend every doctor's appointment that he could.

"It was amazing how well he supported her," Heaslip said to People.

At the age of 61, Haim's mother experienced an increased risk of developing breast cancer, as about 64 percent of all women who develop the disease are over 55 years old, according to the National Cancer Institute.ADNFCR-2795-ID-19667585-ADNFCR
