Interesting . . .
What most people don't know is that Broadway only has half of his right lung, the other half surgically removed when he was less than a year old because it wasn't functioning. Though he was too young to remember, Broadway recalled stories relayed about how he had actually stopped breathing several times as an infant, one of which required a baby sitter to perform CPR. He hasn't had any problems since the surgery, bearing only a scar on his right side that serves as a reminder of what he endured.

That is interesting. Lance must be one heckuva guy to endure all that and
make it as far as he has in sports.

That must've been really scary. Breathing problems in infants are very serious. Many SIDS deaths are actually problems with breathing - or actually the infant "forgetting" to breathe.
