Abstract:  One of the most difficult challenges in health care today is weighing the burdens and benefits of medical treatment. This is especially true in the administration of extraordinary treatments to children with cancer and other life-limiting illnesses. Cancer is the second-leading cause of death in children, and cancer and its therapy are associated with any number of symptoms, including pain.
