Görg’s agent, Sheila Legette was the one who confirmed the actress’ passing. She was in a hospital in O’ahu, Hawaii when she died.

A GoFundMe account was created for her to assist with funeral expenses and it has since reached its goal. The fundraiser was created by Sekaya Verburg on behalf of Cheayenne Görg.

GÖRG’S CANCER DIAGNOSIS

Verburg revealed how the star had been diagnosed with cancer throughout her body and in the lungs. She was expected to live for several days to a week to live.

Her family rushed to be with her when they heard the shocking diagnosis. The fundraiser was meant to help allow them to send her off well since they’d already used their monies for traveling and other expenses.

STARRING ON TELEVISION SHOWS

Verburg described Görg as a person whose “heart and spirit were filled with generosity, love, kindness, forgiveness, and compassion.” Besides acting, the star was also a dancer.

Some people would recognize her from “Twin Peaks” and “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.” In 1990, she starred as Nancy O'Reilly on three episodes of ABC's “Twin Peaks.”
