COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- (KDVR) -- A young Colorado girl struggling emotionally after her battle with cancer has found hope thanks to a local program.

3-year-old Aviana was diagnosed with leukemia last year.

After a long battle, she's in remission, but the traumatic memories remain.

Now, Colorado's own Stink Bug Project is trying to help. They've matched a prison-trained puppy named Oakley with little Aviana to help with her emotional stress.

The Stink Bug program matches dogs trained by prison inmates in Canon City with families who have a child diagnosed with a serious medical condition.
