An Illinois grandma had one wish after having to move into hospice care - to feed giraffes at a local zoo.

The woman's granddaughter, Claire Quist, was all too willing to make that wish come true. Quist took photos of her ecstatic grandma feeding the animals and showed them off on Twitter.

She wrote, "my grandma's wish when she went on hospice was to 'feed a giraffe at the zoo like Claire did'. This makes me so happy."
