Corey Haim's Family Asking Fans to Help Pay for Funeral
Corey Haim will be buried in his native Toronto next week - and his family is asking fans to help cover some of the cost.
"Due to the unexpected expenses of transporting his body to Canada for final resting, a fund has been set up to help his family," reads a statement on his official website.
The site includes instructions on how to send money via Paypal or through the mail:
Corey Haim Memorial Fund

Haim died Wednesday at age 38. Though his mother Judy has said he suffered pulmonary congestion, L.A. County Coroner Assistant Chief Ed Winter tells UsMagazine.com: "We did an autopsy. We gave his mother some preliminary findings but it does not mean it is the final cause of death. The final cause of death is pending toxicology and other reports. We did discuss issues involving his heart and lungs. We are not going to comment on specifics until the final results come back. It could be up to six weeks."
Haim's longtime pal Corey Feldman told CNN's Larry King earlier this week that Haim -- who filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in 1997, listing debts for medical expenses and more than $200,000 in state and federal taxes -- was "very broke, very destitute. Feldman said he was living with his breast cancer-stricken mother in a "month-to-month living" complex in Los Angeles.
Feldman said Haim was so broke he "didn't even have a car."
