What's even more amazing, Chance has outlived his prognosis by six months - and he's still going strong. "We're beating the odds," Cappelli said. "In March, the radiation was palliative, and there was nothing they could do for him - that was it. That's western medicine's prognosis. Our prognosis is he continues to survive on a holistic approach and our loving attention to details and care."
Chance and Koda also play an important part in the youth empowerment programs at Wolf Connection. "Maureen [O'Nell] gave us some of the actual chains that were used on the wolves in Alaska," Cappelli said. "In our programs, when we tell the story of Chance and Koda, we use the chains with our participants to help them identify what chains them in life, what they need to let go of. Chance and Koda have inspired many, many people to break the chains in their lives."
