Animal-Assisted Interactions in Improving Quality of Life in Children with Advanced, Relapsed, or Refractory Cancer and Their Parents
This trial studies how well animal-assisted interactions work in improving quality of life in children with cancer that has spread extensively to other anatomic sites or is no longer responding to treatment, has come back, or does not respond to treatment, and their parents. Having animal-assisted therapy (AAT) visits on a routine basis with a trained animal-handler and his / her dog may help to make the cancer treatment process less stressful for children and their parents.
