Therapy dogs at Kathy’s House offer love to mother and daughter battling cancer

Therapy comes in all forms, and at Kathy’s House — a living facility for people who need long-term medical care — therapy comes with four legs and fur.

Monday, Jan. 23, one Wisconsin family had a tearful goodbye for their four-legged therapist. Kayla Fraley and Nancy May, a mother and daughter from Crandon, Wisconsin, are both battling cancer.

“I was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia and that was in December of 2020,” said 27-year-old Kayla Fraley. The two women said goodbye to two lifelong friends, Lady and Finn. May, Fraley’s mother, was diagnosed with breast cancer shortly after.
