“(Wersching) She was a naturally reserved person and the diagnosis made her even more reserved. She wanted to protect her children, she wanted to get better so she could continue working and honestly, she didn’t want to talk about it. She wanted to live her life her way and be with his family,” read the description of the GoFundme page.

The executive producer of the series “The Vampire Diaries”, Julie Plec -in which Wersching had a role-, shared the campaign on Twitter and mourned the death of the actress: “Rest in peace Annie, you are a wonderful soul”, wrote .
