Jun 11, 2017

Jenna Franks has been waiting five years, two months, and eight days for a kidney transplant. Her mother Karol waits right along with her, next to her; in step, every step of the way.

Along the way, Karol takes pictures. Stunning photographs. We’ve shared many, and here are some more.
