‘My greatest wish for Euphoria was that it could help heal people,’ said the former Disney Channel star, who appeared to be holding back tears as she looked out on the crowd of her peers.

 

‘I want you to know that anyone who has loved a Rue or feels like they are a Rue, I want you to know that I am so grateful for your stories.
