It has revealed the incredible love story behind the photograph of a woman with a terminal illness that absorbs the sun's rays during her last trip to the beach.
Joyce and her husband, who refused to share their last name, opted to retire in Hervey Bay, in northern Queensland, after falling in love with the serene beach during a romantic walk.
While walking hand in hand, the retired couple decided to spend their last years in the coastal city.
After being placed in palliative care years later, Joyce shared her story with two paramedics, Graeme Cooper and Danielle Kellam, as they took her home so she could die surrounded by family members.
But a week later, Mr. Cooper and Ms. Kellam were asked to pick up Joyce and take her back to the hospital.
Joyce could hear and see the water, and Mr. Cooper completed his experience by searching for salt water and sand and returning it to him.
After arriving at Joyce's house, Mr. Cooper and Ms. Kellam decided to make a stop in the ocean so that Joyce could see the quiet beach that brought so many memories, the courier reported.
I went directly to Joyce and whispered in her ear: "Would you like to go back to the beach?" On the way back, "Mr. Cooper said.
Soon he found a perfect spot for photography and placed Joyce, who was tied to a stretcher, on a mound overlooking the ocean.

"His eyes lit up, his heart rate increased," Kellam said.
Mrs. Kellam took a sincere moment from the intimate moment, before Joyce decided it was time to leave.
Two days later, he died in his hospital bed.
Mr. Cooper and Ms. Kellam have been praised for their compassion and humanity.
They were officially invited by the Kensington Palace to join the Duke and the Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, at a luncheon during their tour of Australia.
The couple said it was a great honor to be recognized by the royal family, with Mr. Cooper citing all the great work that Harry has done with the Invictus Games.
But recognition is not the reason why the couple gets up and goes to work every morning.
"If I lost my compassion for the public, that would be the day to hang up my shirt because I would know I would not have what I need to do the job," Cooper said.
