She became pregnant during her final year of Secondary School – and she required Cesarian Section due to pregnancy complications. Judeymi has done a good job as mother for her son Christopher – who’s now a toddler. However, Christopher suffered full thickness burns to his left foot in a trash fire in 2015. Fortunately – there is an excellent burn care center in Managua – APROQUEN. APROQUEN was created by Vivian Pellas – who suffered burns in an airplane crash in 1989.
