Family builds haunted maze to help neighbor battling cancer

This Halloween a Chesapeake family is serving up some scares for a good cause.

Chesapeake, Va (WVEC) -- This Halloween a family in the Western Branch neighborhood served up some scares for a good cause.

The Dignard family transformed their backyard into haunted maze to support their neighbor battling stage four cancer.

Cathy Dignard said she’s always loved Halloween but this time she thought she’d do something special to help her neighbor, Angela Eates Seed.

“She’s the most caring, loving individual that I could ever possibly know. We are here for her,” said Dignard.  

The Dignard family and many others in the community are supporting Seed who last January was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoid Leukemia.

“We are all Team Angela we are bound and determined to help her get through this. Nobody fights alone and she definitely has a big team on her side and she is going to beat this,” said Dignard.

McBride Lumber in Norfolk donated wooden pallets to the Dignard’s for the haunted maze. David Dignard, Cathy’s husband constructed the haunted maze out of the pallets with help from his neighbors. The maze has been running every weekend with Halloween night being its last night open. Dignard said people throughout Hampton Roads have supported the effort.

“It is absolutely amazing. I can not express to you the love that’s in my heart to see the people that don’t even know Angela come up and want to do something to help,” said Dignard.

All the donations collected from people attending the maze are donated to the Seed family. If you’d like to visit the haunted maze you can do so Halloween night at 4213 Madrid Place in Chesapeake, Va.

Family and friends of Seed have set up a webpage for people to follow Angela’s progress and donate to the cause.
