A giraffe at Blijdorp Zoo in Rotterdam, Netherlands, gave a lick to terminally ill Mario Eijs on Wednesday.

Eijs, who has a mental handicap, is dying of a brain tumor and has difficulty walking or speaking.

The Stichting Ambulance Wens (Ambulance Wish Foundation) offers transport for terminally ill patients who cannot walk to help fulfill a last wish. In Eijs' case that was to be taken to the Blijdorp Zoo where he worked doing odd jobs for 25 years. (Stichting Ambulance Wens)
