ARCHDALE, N.C. -- One haunted house in Archdale isn't ready to call it quits just yet. Trotterville Horror is staying open one more night, for one reason, Natalie Parry.

Parry is battling lymphoma and her family is struggling to keep their home and keep up on the medical bills.

"It's our property tax, it's our house payment, just one chemo is $8,500 a month. We've had to choose between medicine and paying the bills and we've gotten to a point now where, I'm not willing to give up," explains Natalie Parry, who is fighting lymphoma.

The Parry family has battled cancer before. The youngest boy, Bryson died from leukemia in 2007. Last year is when Natalie got her diagnosis.

"It's not gone quite like we had hoped," she said.

The owner of Trotterville Horror, Shaun Trotter met Natalie just three weeks ago. Natalie put out donation jars and was able to raise some money to go towards her medical bills, but the crew decided they wanted to do more.

"Everyone of my workers are volunteering all of my staff is volunteering for Natalie," said Shaun Trotter, owner of Trotterville Horror.

Trotterville Horror is opening up on Saturday, November 9 from 8 p.m. til midnight. "It's the most important night I've ever had in 6 years of business," Trotter said.

Tickets are $10. All the proceeds go to Natalie and her family.

"It's wonderful to know that people care to help someone that they never met," Parry said.

    No mother should ever have to make a decision like she is having to make. The people at the insurance company should be ashamed of themselves.
