MacKenzie + Illia
When MacKenzie Dunkelman of Fort Worth was diagnosed with cerebral palsy her family went through a grieving process. Today they are celebrating her life and marveling at how she’s been transformed — with the aid of her Canine Companions for Independence service dog Illia. The meaning of the Russian name ‘Illia’ is “God Is Lord.” This is their story.
