Cooper Cochran, 5, and his mother, Cherie Trout, of Woodland stop to enjoy a mural at the UC Davis Comprehensive Cancer Center last week. Kent Peterson’s artwork is part of the facility’s approach to providing an upbeat distraction in a place of high-stakes medical procedures. “It’s not just therapeutic for the child,” Trout said, “but for the parent who has to endure this while the child is enduring it.”
