Lake Annabelle Hall wouldn't be alive today if doctors at Children's Hospital of Colorado hadn't operated on a cyst on her left lung before she was born. Doctors pulled her halfway out of her mother's womb, leaving her connected to her the umbilical cord and placenta, which served as life support for her while a team of 43 doctors and nurses operated on her. She is now 5 months old after the medical procedure for a rare condition that saved her life.
