When two sisters saw their mother's health deteriorate, they wanted to do something special for her before she passed away. They organized a visit that left their mom in tears.
Melbourne, Australia resident Lisa McDonald knew the end was near for her sickly mom, and she wanted to give her one final moment of happiness.
McDonald's mom loved deers throughout most of her life, so the caring daughter came up with a plan. Along with her sister, McDonald contacted a couple who owned a mobile petting farm and asked them to assist.

THEY BROUGHT BAMBI TO THE WOMAN
Simone and Chris were more than happy to help give the Bambi-obsessed woman a dose of joy this year. When they heard McDonald's mother was getting weaker, they got in their car and started their journey—along with their fawn named Bambi.
"However, unfortunately mum deteriorated quickly today and Simone and Chris didn't hesitate. They drove two and a half hours to bring Bambi to meet mum."

THE ONLINE REACTION
The woman who wore a Bambi T-shirt and had Bambi statues throughout her house was overcome with emotion when she saw the real-life deer in her room. She petted the animal and had a look of awe and wonder on her face.
McDonald shared the post in the well-known Facebook group, The Kindness Pandemic. Commenters sent well wishes for her mom, and many stated that the video moved them to tears. One user wrote: "That's so sad."

GRATEFUL FOR THE MEMORY
While the family was heartbroken about their mom's condition, the visit from the deer cheered them up and gave them a special memory to treasure. McDonald was eternally grateful to Simone and Chris.
She expressed: "Out of pure love and kindness. I cannot thank them enough for what they have done for my mum and my family."
ANOTHER DYING WOMAN GETS A SURPRISE VISIT
Many people want one last chance to see the animals they love in their final moments. Seeing her pets before she passed away also meant more than words could say for a terminally-ill woman in Chester, England.
Last year, hospice staff allowed Jan Holman's pets, two Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, and her horse to visit the facility. The dogs came to her bedside, and the horse peered in through a window during the emotional visit.
THEY HELPED FULFILL HER FINAL WISH
Her husband, Dennis, thanked the staff and said: "Nothing is too much trouble, including arranging for a horse to visit!" They went above their call of duty to help another and fulfilled her final wish.
Holman and her husband were grateful for the visit, similar to McDonald, who was happy she could fill her mother's last memories with the warmth and joy of her favorite animal.
