    A Last Wish Fulfilled

Rembrandt is considered as one of the greatest Dutch painter ever. His Renaissance paintings have inspired generations and will inspire generations to come.

Many hope to see these famous paintings sometime in their life. An unnamed patient wanted to see the Rembrandt paintings, but ALS was a seemingly impassable barrier that couldn’t be broken. The museum was often crowded, and wheeling in a hospitalized patient wasn’t an option.

Kees Veldboer, a former ambulance driver, formed the Ambulance Wish Foundation. When the Dutch charity heard about this woman’s last wish, they decided to fund the venture.

After arranging with the museum, a special audience after hours was arranged. The woman was brought into her own private viewing to fulfill her wish. Along with three other terminally ill patients, they enjoyed the legendary paintings for the last time.
