  • Freelance photographer David Y. Lee, left, takes a photo of Amy Starr, who has been waiting for a heart transplant for nearly three months on Tuesday, Sept. 23, 2014 in Sacramento, Calif. Lee started "The Waiting List" a non-profit organization with the intent to educate and advocate for organ donation by humanizing the statistics through visual storytelling and the power of social media, one story and one individual at a time. Ninety percent of Americans say they support organ donation yet only 42.7% of individuals ages 18 and up have signed up. This fact alone and Lee's passion for storytelling was enough to move him to recognize the opportunity to end the waiting list.
