These powerful photos of terminally ill people living out their final wishes are enough to make anyone cry, or at least to think about life and death, and what do we really want to do with the short time we have here on Earth.

Terminally ill people are usually filled with regrets, realizing that it’s too late to do a lot of the things you planned to do throughout your life, and this is where the Ambulance Wish Foundation kicks in.

The Ambulance Wish Foundation is a Dutch nonprofit organization established in 2006, by ambulance driver Kees Veldboer.

After moving Mario, a terminally ill patient, from hospital to hospital, Kees Veldboer started talking to him and he heard the patient talking about how he would like to see the Vlaardingen canal one last time and enjoy the sun, wind and the smell of the water.

Kees Veldboer had the brilliant and touching idea to set up a place where dying people could live out their final wishes, and this is how the Ambulance Wish Foundation was born.
